Many benign conditions can cause elevations of the CA 125 level, including chest and abdominal infections, pregnancy, endometriosis, benign ovarian cysts, uterine fibroid, pancreatitis, normal menstruation, pelvic inflammatory disease, and liver disease.

I don't know what caused the doctor to order CA-125 test, especially if you had a clear ultrasound.  Do you think any of the benign conditions listed above could be a cause?  Are you being treated for any condition at present?

in the past i have had ovarian cysts but they just disappear so i went to see the doctor for a check up and she notices that i had enlarged thyroids so the resuts came back that it was active but with low levels so thats why she get all this test done.  my mom had ovarian cancers and breast cancers all at the age of 36. and now i feel like i have something in the back of my throat i just don't know what is going on..........

What you feel in the throat probably is associated with the enlarged thyroid.  You are wise to investigate any cysts as you have done so far.  CA-125 is a marker for other cancers  besides ovarian cancer including uterine tubes, endometrium, lung, breast, pancreas, and gastrointestinal tract.  Not saying you have any of those!  It sounds like the thyroid connection may be the culprit but I don't understand much about thyroid disorders.  Maybe a thyroid medication would be prescribed to you.
