In brief: Breast cancer

Ca 15-3 is one of the cancer markers that is useful following the course of the tumor, i.
e., in a patient with breast cancer and elevated levels of 15-3, the blood levels reflect tumor mass and allow the doctor to monitor the course of the tumor. It is not useful for cancer screening.
