Today, I went for a review. I took blood and tested the tumor markers. The carbohydrate antigen 125 was 139, which was significantly higher than the normal value. What do you mean? The other two carcinoembryonic antigen and carbohydrate antigen 153 are normal. In 2016, a breast cancer operation was performed, which represented the recurrence of breast cancer. Answer! thank you!
In general, the index of breast cancer recurrence is carbohydrate antigen 153. If it is simply the increase of carbohydrate antigen drugs, there is no abnormality in other indicators. In addition, it is not found by CT color Doppler ultrasound. If it relapses, it can be considered to monitor this indicator regularly.
The high level of carbohydrate antigen 125 does not mean breast cancer recurrence. In female patients, if it is significantly higher, it is also necessary to take into account the possibility of ovarian lesions. For some benign diseases, such as inflammation or effusion, it will also increase.
Hello, in combination with your above question consultation, the increase of the above tumor markers alone can not indicate the existence of malignant tumor or recurrence and metastasis of malignant tumor after treatment. It needs to be further combined with imaging and pathological examination results to assist in diagnosis.
The value of carbohydrate antigen 125 is higher than that of normal suggesting that patients may have gynecologic or digestive or breast malignancies. In view of the history of breast cancer, it is suggested that the targeted treatment should be combined with chest and abdomen enhanced CT, gynecological ultrasound and breast ultrasound based on the above indicators.
