In brief: Yes

There are other cancers that will have a positive ca-125.
They include cancer of the pancreas, stomach, esophagus, liver, breast, colon, or lung. Cancer of the lining of the abdominal cavity, and cancer of the fallopian tubes or lining of uterus.

It is no use as a screening test--way too many false positives. It is useful once cancer is confirmed by a definitive test for helping to monitor therapy
