Thank you for your quick response. I appreciated your explanation, it helps me be more positive! It is also good to know that the choices being made are the correct ones.
The CA-125 test cannot be reliably used to screen for ovarian cancer. The scores are not always indicative of whether the condition is benign or malignant. On this forum, there are women posting who had high test results but did not have cancer, while other women posting here had low test results yet were found to have cancer. Many, many other conditions can affect the test results. For example, an infection can influence the results. In your case, it is possible that the inflammation caused by the cyst has raised the test result value. Anyway, you are doing exactly what you should be doing at this time - having proper medical care with follow-up testing to monitor your condition.
