I have asked my GP for a copy of the pathology for my first operation, when the hospital found that my left ovary 'had some malignancy'. Part of the report reads: "The tumour stains positive with CK7, EMA, BerEP4, CA125 and p53 (focal, weak). The tumour does not stain with CK20, WT-1, AFP, ER or PF."
Does anyone know if staining positive means that the cancer is picked up with CA125 (etc)? My oncologist told me that the form of clear cell cancer I have been treated for is not picked up with CA125 and what I think I understand from the above, it seems that it is. Any enlightenment, anyone?
