Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 2 years ago.
Why did you get the CA 125?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

because of weight loss and white cell count was high somethng like 4.1 then ca125 was done 3 weels ago and then had a box ticked blood film it was one tube took there mut be because doctor did it then phoned phoned se retary this afternoon and she said blood film had come in and 68.1 conbined predictive model doctor hadnt seen it yet maybw ive spelt film wrong I dont know but only was told that today

Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 2 years ago.
OK
The test is not very useful without a diagnosis if cancer.
It is a cancer marker, but used to follow cancer, not to diagnose cancer.
Ovarian cancer is one concern.
If I saw this result I would want an ultrasound or MRI of the abdomen.
