Customer Question

Hello,
I had a missed period in the month of April and during the month of may I had very scarce bleeding for 10days which was unusual. During those two months I had severe abdominal bloating and nausea. My bloods were done during that period. And a blood test called Ca19.9 came back to be 35. However during the month of June I had a regular period and all my symptoms of bloating and nausea have settled. My GP has suggested a pelvic scan and gyne referral for the elevated CA 19.9. is It necessary?

With all these symptoms along with increased CA levels, it is necessary to get the pelvic scan to find the exact cause so that it can be treated accordingly. So I would say you should get it.
