I just had the CA 125 done and my result is 13.
Does the test ever come back at 0?
I am concerned as I have abdominal pain and feel like there is a baseball in there. I am thin, under 100 pounds. Also, a maternal aunt died from ovca.
I have just had abdominal hysterctomy...complete removal of both ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, and cervix. I am 32 years old with NO FAMILY history of cervical cancer. My CA 125 test was positive, but was A VERY LOW number. When I had surgery (last week), the mass on my ovary was the size of a medium cantaloupe!!! At this time I am not sure what the name of the malignant cells are as they were sent to Boston for analysis. If you have a mass...if you can feel ANYTHING in your abdominal area and are having cramps or any unusual symptoms GO TO YOUR GYN and DEMAND A SONOGRAM. I was treated for almost 5 weeks for a urinary tract infection and I finally went to my GYN and 2 weeks later have major surgery. Please note that I feel so much better, in fact, I felt better 2 days post op than I did the week before surgery. I also believe in the healing power of prayer and I believe that God is healing me. This could be your life, don't mess around. Good luck.
