Frances asks a good question
CA 125 can triage cysts but unfortunately it can be elevated in premenopausal women from, menses, pregnancy, infection, fibroids, endometriosis, bowel disorders
I would suggest a repeat in 6-8 weeks
but it is almost March now so that is probably fine
my big question is if your sister has gotten genetic testing for BRCA 1/2 gene mutations
if your sister has a mutation, then you should get tested. If you have a mutation, you need tto have your ovaries and fallopian tubes removed prophylacticlly now
Hi - first, I am not doctor. In fact, I also just posted a few questions about a large ov cyst that my GYN Oncologist thinks is benign, and saw your note. I've researched my case and based on what I've learned at this point, I'm curious if your doctor ordered a CA125 test? Also, maybe your sister could ask her GYN Oncologist if you should get a second opinion now? Just some caring suggestions from what I've researched at this point on my case.
