CA 125 - Cancer Antigen

CA-125 is a protein that is found more in ovarian cancer cells than in other cells. CA-125 test is often used to monitor women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The test is useful if CA-125 level was high when the cancer was first diagnosed. In these cases, measuring the CA-125 over time is a good tool to determine if ovarian cancer treatment is working. In general, this test is not used to screen healthy women for ovarian cancer when a diagnosis has not yet been made.
