I have elevated CA-125 levels and 2 cysts, one on each ovary slightly smaller than tennis balls. Would this indicate cancer, endo, or something different? I have surgery scheduled for January 15th.

Was this test repeated? Surgery to remove the cysts or ovaries or more?

What is your CA 125 number (if you don't mind me asking)

My CA 125 number is 52.5 and the test was only done once. The surgery is to remove the cysts and not the ovaries.

Normal range is between 35 - 40...as you will read ovarian cysts can cause an elevated CA-125.

However several women's reproductive disorders can cause a false positive result. Endometriosis, benign ovarian cysts, first trimester of pregnancy, and pelvic inflammatory disease all produce higher levels of CA-125.
