What does serial CA-125 testing involve?

Serial CA-125 testing is considered to be a significantly more reliable method of observing the evolution of CA-125 protein levels than having a single test performed. It is also deemed a highly successful screening and diagnosis method for ovarian cancer, since it entails a more complex and conclusive comparison of the results at various points in time.

Moreover, repetitive CA-125 tests are often used in determining whether the ovarian cancer responds to treatment or has reappeared, in the case of previously affected women.

We wanted a resource where people who are looking for better help can find it, because one of the issues that I have found is that the diagnosis takes a little bit, some people don’t know if they are diagnosed or not. This is something that it is important enough, that is why I wanted to put the information together.
