Your ca125 can be elevated for a number of reasons , the mayoralty of those not dangerous, endometriosis or benign cysts can cause them to be raised. Try not to worry too much. I know it can be scary, before I was difnised with endometriosis i had a ca125 test and results were much higher than yours and it was just as result of the endometriosis but I remember being quite freaked out about it x

My level has been from normal to 268 and it changes. If you have something bad, it never goes down. I know ladies who had like 1000 before hysterectomy and with bad endometriosis and it was still just endometriosis. So it shouldn't be anything bad, but you do need a MRI scan with a good specialist who is used to find endometriosis. Even cysts can make CA 25 to go up and any inflammation in the abdomen. But of course, its good to check it out and to be in the care of good and experienced endometriosis doctor.
