Hi there,
Most labs use their own reference ranges. The normal ranges of Ca 25 are 0 - 35 U/mL. Normal range may vary slightly lab to lab. Levels above 35 suggest the presence of ovarian tumor. A blood test measuring the presence of an antigen in malignancies arising in entodermal or gastrointestinal tissue is CEA assay. Its presence may indicate presence of malignancy. Elevated CEA may be seen normally in smokers .The normal range is < 2.5 ng/ml. No doctor can accurately diagnose malignant or benign ovarian cysts on an ultrasound. The information on whether it is fluid or solid, simple or complex, regular or irregular can be obtained through an ultrasound. All test results should be correlated clnincally.Have a frank discussion with your doctor. Do keep me posted with more queries.
Best luck and regards!
