Cancer Antigen (CA) 125

Cancer Antigen (CA) 125 Test

Cancer Antigen 125 (CA-125) is a tumor marker primarily used to monitor therapy during treatment for ovarian cancer. CA-125 is also used to detect whether cancer has come back after treatment is complete. A series of CA-125 tests that shows rising or falling concentrations is often more useful than a single result.

If CA-125 levels fall during therapy, this generally indicates that the cancer is responding to treatment. If CA-125 levels rise or stay the same, then cancer may not be responding to therapy. High CA-125 levels after treatment are may indicate that cancer has come back.
