To my understanding anything under 30 is normal, the numbers can be effected by many things other than cancer, infections ect. Art

i just had a bilateral cystectomy for 3 endometriomas.Initially my fertility doctor found the tumor on my vaginal ultrasound and since he wants to make sure about the findings he ordered a Ca 125. I have a result of 187 (normal range is 35 below).It is worrisome but they decided to do surgery to remove the cyst.
According to my gynecologist oncologist he didn't sent that for a frozen section,a test to check if it is cancerous since he is sure that those are endometriomas.I also found out that an elevated Ca 125 is not a single indication for ovarian cancer,any inflammatory processes within your pelvis can cause an elevation. Biopsy and seeking a gyne-onco advise would be the best option.
