There isnt any.
If you have endometriosis and you had you CA-125 test done, then what it is detecting is most likely inflammation.
I had mine done twice. When I was ovulating it was 78, when I was menstruating it was 37.
I ended up having stage IV endo.
Some doctors use it as a screening for ovarian cancer and endometriosis.
Do you have endo or is it just suspected? If it is just suspected then I would say you probably have it judging by the results of your CA-125
HI everyone just wondering if i had a scan for cysts just befor christmas apprentley they were quite small. But know im going through alot of stinging and burning sensation around that area. would it mean they are getting bigger. plus also my womb is slitley puffy ryt now started getting the pain three days ago but i thought it was my IBS that was playing up. My mum had one when she was my ageat 20 but then she got rushed to hospital because it ruptured her fellopien tube. how long shall i give it befor i ring the doctors. please help thankyou .
It is possible that yes they have grown. I would go in and get a follow up ultrasound.
If you are not already you should try taking the BCP to shrink them and to prevent them from growing in the future
