      Had my bloods done a few weeks ago and my FSH and LH were raised and also part of my liver function test was raised so he said to get them repeated. Been having irregular periods for a year, weight gain and now getting pains/aches in my left ovary area. The nurse told me what i was getting tested and it was ca125 but she said don't worry about that, calcium, inflammation and liver bloods again.

    Dianne, no need to worry. My doc ordered one for me as well due to ovarian cysts. Mine came back elevated and an MRI revealed a possible malignant cyst. I went into a panic attack, and had severe anxiety and depression that followed. Surgery was scheduled and it turns out the cyst was endometriosis and no cancer was present. Endo and lots of harmless things can elevate the CA125 so dont worry. This test is becoming a normal test for us over 40it seems. Hope this helps you.

    Dear Dianne

    I had yearly ovarian scans which included ca125 testing, due to family history i had this done. One time it was elevated and i was sent a letter to tell me this, i did nothing but worry! Thankfully the next time it had gone down. Alot of things can cause it to be raised x
