Not always.: If this test is high, it could mean endometrial cancer, fallopian tube cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer and gastrointestinal cancer. This can also indicate benign conditions, like endometriosis, other ovary disorders, and pregnancy, as well as any inflammatory condition in the abdiminal area.

Ca125 is also known as Cancer antigen 125. Ca-125 (cancer antigen 125 or carbohydrate antigen 125) is a biomarker/tumor marker for ovarian cancer (etc); however, it is not sensitive or specific enough to use as a screening test.

I've been told my ca125 blood test is high what could it be as I have bad hot sweats my cyst has disappeared not the menopause had the blood repeated ?
Not long ago found out that many times blood test called 'ca125" can tell if you have cancer.is it true?
No: Ca 125 is a tumor marker which is frequently associated with ovarian cancer. The " Ca" refers to carbohydrate antigen which has little to do with cancer except when it is known that ovarian cancer is present. At that time the test can be used, for "monitoring" the response to treatment, but not for making the diagnosis. One of the frequent causes of an elevated Ca125 is alcoholic cirrhosis. ...Read more

My ca 125 blood test result slightly elevated, with a different reading 3 times, what could cause this to happen?
CA 125: A ca 125 is not a very accurate test. Anything that affects the lining of your abdomen (peritoneum), lung cavity (pleura), or sac around your heart (pericardium) can change the ca 125 level. This includes everything from a cold to kidney failure to cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I went to take a ca-125 blood test and the doctors office said it was normal that I had a 8.6, is that actually normal?
CA 125 - Why check?: 8.6 sounds like a normal value for the cancer antigen 125 (ca125) laboratory test. However, why did you want to get it? It is not a screening test for ovarian cancer. It is an adjunctive test for measuring tumor response (ie, a tumor marker) for patients with known ovarian cancer. It isn't perfect even when we know someone has ovarian cancer. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
