Hi, i'm english but live in Australia. I have endo and am always worrying about my health, forever at the doctor, it's exhausting. I had been feeling nauseous and have had tests to rule things out. Saw a naturopath and she wanted a load of bloods taken so i went to my GP and one of them was CA125. The doctor didn't want me to have it because she said historically it was hoped to screen for Ovarian Cancer but it shows false positive in too many women without OC - but as soon as she said that I had to have it done and now i am freaking out. I had a pelvic ultrasound and transvag ultrasound 3 months ago and all normal. I just know that the CA125 will come back raised because I have my period and I have endo. And it's a couple of days before Xmas and all I can do is sit and google and terrify myself. From all your experience, can CA125 be raised with endo and if it comes back high and I've had a normal U/S, should i not worry about it?? Why on earth is a naturopath requesting tumour marker tests?? I'm seeing her tomorrow and am really annoyed. Thanks, crezzy
