I had a CA-125 done for ovarian cysts (10.5cm and 4cm) Test came back 190. Had another test weeks later and new u/s. Cyst is now 8.4 and CA-125 is 110. Is this even possible? Cysts are hypoechoic cystic lesions possibly endometriomas & endometriosis.
CA-125 testing: CA- 125 testing is notoriously inaccurate when it comes to testing for ovarian cancer especially when endometriosis is a part of the equation. IF there is continued concern most MD's will take a "look/see" with the laparoscope and confirm a definitive diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Would diagnostic laparoscopy find ovarian cancer if there was any? I've had one, and ultrasounds and a colonoscopy but no cause for bloating found
Usually: Yes provided the ovaries were readily visible and you had a thorough laparoscopy..

Try modifying your diet, cut out caffeine and drink 80-100 oz of fluids per day for 10-15 days. Simethicone and charcoal tablets may also help as will probiotics. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi doctor I have a 10 cm multilocular ovarian cyst. doctors say laparatomy and laparascopy are both good but their preferances are diffrent?
