Very High CA-125 Count -- 419

After visiting my doctor for abdominal pain I was sent for a CAT SCAN which indicated a mass 7.5cm x 9.5cm. A CA-125 test came back at 419. Does this high of a number mean it is more likely to be malignant, or could it still be something else? I'm being sent to a Cancer hospital after my ultrasound next week. Doctor said he wants a surgical oncologist to remove the mass "just in case."

Can other benign causes create a count that high?

Welcome to the site.  Anything that bothers the pelvic area can cause an elevated ca125.  Are you premenopausal?  The test is not reliable for premeno women.  I am glad that you are being sent to a gyn/onc.  They are specialists and have seen everything.  Although 99% of ovarian cysts are benign, you are wise in seeking medical attention. You are in my thoughts and prayers.  Godspeed
