Order an at-home Ovarian Cancer Test to detect the levels of CA 125 (Cancer Antigen 125) in your blood aiding the detection of ovarian cancer or its reoccurrence. This test is a useful tool for monitoring how ovarian cancer is responding to treatment or for predicting a patient’s diagnosis post-treatment.
This prognostic biomarker is also used for fallopian tube or primary peritoneum cancers. High levels of CA 125 do not always mean cancer and can be caused by other medical conditions causing health issues. Elevated CA 125 levels are common in perimenopausal women and a variety of benign conditions.
Ovarian cancer testing requires a CT (Computerized Tomography) scan, a needle biopsy, laparoscopy, or a transvaginal ultrasound. However, a less invasive blood test for CA 125 is the standard screening test for detecting abnormally high levels in women with ovarian cancer or sometimes a benign yet troubling issue including menstruating issues, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and pelvic inflammatory disease.
CA 125 is a protein found in the blood and normal levels are 35 U/mL (units per millilitre) or lower. It is a type of tumour marker recommended for aiding the diagnosis and management of ovarian cancer, mainly if the levels are higher than 40 U/mL.
Over 250,000 women are affected by ovarian cancer every year and it has been known to be called a “silent disease” as symptoms do not always occur until the latter stages. Early detection of ovarian cancer can be difficult to diagnose, however 90% of women with advanced ovarian cancer and 50% of women with early-stage ovarian cancer have elevated levels of CA 125 in their blood.
This rapid three-step lateral flow immunoassay test uses a specimen collection capillary tube/pipette, inclusive of test buffer and a chromatographic test cassette to detect the level of CA 125 in whole blood above 40 U/mL for self-testing and is shipped directly to you.
