Possibly: Tumor markers are to be taken in context with the clinical picture because they can go up in non malignant situations and there can be some debate on what number should be considered abnormal. That said, 444 is quite elevated. Rather than freaking out, make sure she sees a good gyn and gets this properly evaluated. Best wishes to you. ...Read more

Graves' is not good for you and should be treated. ...Read more
Just diagnosed with hyperthyroidism with TSH of 0.023 and now the TSH is 6.2. Is the difference a normal thing to happen? Do I have hyperthyroidism?
Something's wrong: With the lab tests or you don't really have hyperthyroidism. You may have had an episode of thyroiditis with a depressed tsh, which then became higher as your thyroid level dropped low. Otherwise, one of the lab tests doesn't make sense, and in that situation you always repeat the lab, plus draw other thyroid tests for confirmation. ...Read more
