In brief: 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.
This is a big reason why it is used with other tests in evaluation and to follow treatment response.
