my mum had take a CA125 test and found that the index is very high(CA125+208).  she had taken a abdominal hysterectomy in 2009 for cancer.

Now there is a lump in the abdomen.and sometimes will have hematochezia.

Please help to confirm the status.

Thank you!~

She needs to get a biopsy on the lump.  Sometimes other things can make the level high.  Mine was 72 and the particular test the normal was 35. I don't have ovarian cancer but a huge cyst and endometriosis.  There are other things that can raise the levels but she needs to get a biopsy to know what is wrong.
