OVERVIEW


Cancer Antigen 125 (CA125)

Cancer Antigen 125 (CA125) is a protein located on most ovarian cancer cells that is secreted into the blood and can be measured through blood test. CA125 can also be found on normal and cancerous cells in the body.


Why a CA125 test is done?

A CA125 test may be done to evaluate:

If your doctor suspects there may be chances of cancer
To identify that if cancer therapy is working
To identify if cancer has relapsed (recurred) after treatment

This investigation is not recommended as a screening for ovarian cancer due to the fact that CA125 can be normal in many ladies with early stage ovarian cancer and it may also be higher than normal in a non-cancerous (benign) conditions and other cancers.


How a CA125 test is done?

A CA125 is done through blood test.  It measures the quantity of CA125 protein present in blood. A sample of blood is taken with the aid of inserting a needle into the vein in your arm.


What does the result mean?

High levels of CA125 can exist in both cancers and non-cancerous conditions.

Cancers

The CA125 blood levels can be elevated in ovarian cancers and other cancers including:

Uterine
Fallopian Tube
Pancreatic
Breast
Colorectal
Lung
Stomach

Lower levels of CA125 in the blood during the therapy indicates that the cancer is responding to treatment.

If the CA125 level stays stationary or rises during treatment, it might also mean that the cancer is not responding to treatment.

An escalated CA125 level after treatment mean that the cancer has relapsed (recurred).

Non-cancerous Conditions

The CA125 blood level may also be escalated in non-cancerous conditions including:

Menstruation
Pregnancy
Endometriosis
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
Non-Cancerous Ovarian Cysts
Uterine Fibroids


What happens if the results are abnormal?

Your healthcare practitioner will decide whether other tests, procedures, follow-up care or extra treatment are required.
