Cancer Antigen 125
Item Catalog Number: LC002303
CA 125 is a protein present in normal ovarian tissue and appears in the blood when protective barriers are destroyed, as occurs in cancer or endometriosis.
This test is a tumor marker for monitoring disease progression and reoccurrence in ovarian cancer. CA 125 can also be detected in other cancers such as pancreas, liver, colon, breast and lung. This test is not intended as a screening tool for diagnosis of ovarian cancer.
Your CA 125 level can be checked with or without fasting. Take your medications as prescribed. The CA 125 is not included in any other Life Extension® blood test panel.
