Hi my mum s 67 &she has an hyperthyroidism, TSH 0.01 but t4&t3 r normal&she has an ovarian cyst wiz ca125 444. Is it cancer?

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.

Your cyst, at 10cm, is at risk of rupturing or turning on itself, called torsion. Have you spoken to a doctor about having the cyst drained or removed? No roller coasters, i've seen patients with big cysts get torsion from a coaster. ...Read more
