Pathology
In brief: Breast cancer
Ca 15-3 levels can be used to monitor the course of breast cancer.
If a patient with breast cancer has elevated ca 15-3 levels the blood levels of the marker are a measure of the amount of tumor and can be followed to judge the response to treatment. It is not useful as a diagnostic test.
