Ca 125 and common head cold

I am scheduled for my ca 125 tomorrow... woke up this morning with a yukky head cold.  Would a common head cold skew or alter the results of my ca 125 and or should I put it off??

No a common cold would not effect the results.

Hope you are doing better.  I once read on this forum about never taking ca125 with infections viruses and or colds.... I checked the internet and found no actual reliable study that says anything about it...
think of you often.. Ronni
