Stg 1/grd 1 mucus rght ovary tumor w/o stroma invasion '13/CA125 went from 26.9 to 31.2 on last test '15/Low dense spots found near right broad ligame?

No mets: Gr1 without stromal invasion probably based on salpingo oophorectomy should be cured. Rt broad lig nodules probably inflammatory nodes. Ca 125 not good for dx but for monitoring. When ovary spreads the marker jumps several hundred points, not just 4. In 4 months repeat scan. If there is a significant change then bx needed but doubt this will occur. ...Read more
