CA125
Has anyone here had increasing CA125, but within the normal levels and then been diagnosed with Stage 1?  My CA125 is increasing but still within normal levels.  I've lost 30lbs because of nausea, can only eat a little at a time. I'm 5'9" and 115 lbs.now. All gastro tests are normal.  I've had CT showing irregular cyst on right ovary, but dr says ultrasound shows cyst to be normal. My periods have been irregular--anywhere from 2 1/2 weeks to 10 weeks. Thanks for any help.

Some ovarian cancer types do not secrete the antigen labeled as CA-125, so the test is not useful in those conditions.   Its best use is to set a base-line to assist doctors in determining, if cancer is found, whether the cancer is reacting to treatment, assuming that the cancer does produce CA-125.
