Hi There
CA 125 can be elevated with any type of inflammation.
It is a protein that is normally secreted by the lining of the abdomen (peritoneum) and lungs (pleura) in addition to the reproductive organs.
The level will also vary with the menstrual cycle.

Here is a nice link for more information about this protein
