Cancer Antigen 125 (CA-125) Test: Detecting and Monitoring Ovarian Cancer

The Cancer Antigen 125 (CA-125) test is a blood test that measures the amount of CA-125 protein in the blood. CA-125 is a protein found on most ovarian cancer cells that is secreted into the bloodstream and can be measured. This test is used for various purposes, including detecting ovarian, fallopian tube, and peritoneal cancers, monitoring cancer treatment, and checking for cancer recurrence

Why a CA-125 Test is Done

A CA-125 test may be done:

  • If the doctor suspects there may be cancer.
  • To find out if cancer treatment is working.
  • To find out if cancer has come back (recurred) after treatment

How the Test is Done

A sample of blood is taken by inserting a needle into a vein in your arm. No special preparation is needed for this test

What the Results Mean

High levels of CA-125 are often found in people who have ovarian cancer. If you have ovarian cancer, CA-125 blood tests can help show whether your treatment is working. However, it’s important to note that high levels of CA-125 can also be found in non-cancerous conditions and other cancers. Therefore, further testing is usually needed to diagnose cancer
