DESCRIPTION:

Medical researchers have identified more than a dozen substances that, when at abnormal levels, can indicate cancer. Tumor markers are measurable biochemicals that are typically associated with a “bad” or cancerous tumor (malignancy). They are either produced by tumor cells or by the body in response to tumor cells.

The Cancer Screen and Tumor Marker Panel (Female) from ANY LAB TEST NOW screens for several types of cancers that affect women.

While scientists have not discovered markers for every type of cancer, this panel will evaluate the levels of common tumor markers related to cancers such as liver, lung, breast, stomach, gastrointestinal, and pancreatic.

Among several tests included in this Value Panel, the Cancer Screen and Tumor Marker Panel (Female) includes the Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA) Test. This measures the amount of this protein in your blood that may be present in people with cancer. CEA is normally produced during the development of a fetus and stops before birth (it is not present in the blood of healthy adults.)

Specifically for women, this panel analyzes the CA 15‐3 and CA 125 proteins. At times, the CA 15‐3 can rise with breast cancer tumor growth and fall with treatment. An elevated CA 125 level can indicate ovarian cancer.

It also includes the Alpha‐Fetoprotein (AFP) test that can determine if you have a protein that can lead to liver cancer.

Beta2‐microglobulin is a protein found on the surface of many cells in your body. This test can help determine if you have specific types of cancer affecting white blood cells including chronic lymphocytic leukemia, non‐Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and multiple myeloma or kidney disease.

High Results Indicate:

COMPLETE BLOOD COUNT: Please see individual test.

CHEMISTRY PANEL: Please see individual test.

ALPHA-FETOPROTEIN: Elevated levels can indicate liver cancer, ovarian cancer, cirrhosis, hepatitis or other cancers.

BETA-2- MICROGLOBULIN: High levels indicate a poorer prognosis in your condition.

AMYLASE: Elevated levels can indicate pancreatitis, pancreatic duct obstruction, pancreas cancer, and gallbladder attack.

NEURON-SPECIFIC ENOLASE: Elevated levels could indicate neuroblastoma or small cell lung cancer.

CEA: Elevated levels of CEA indicate tumors somewhere in the body.

CA 125: Elevated levels may indicate ovarian cancer. This is used to monitor treatment.

CA 15-3: Elevated levels indicate breast cancer and the size of the tumor.

Low Results Indicate:

COMPLETE BLOOD COUNT: Please see individual test.

CHEMISTRY PANEL: Please see individual test.

ALPHA-FETOPROTEIN: There are no low levels for this test.

BETA-2-MICROGLOBULIN: Lower levels mean a better prognosis for your condition.

AMYLASE: Low levels of amylase may indicate permanent damage to pancreatic cells.

NEURON-SPECIFIC ENOLASE: There are no low levels for this test.

CEA: Lowering levels indicate that the tumor has been removed.

CA 125: Low levels may indicate that ovarian cancer treatment is working.

CA 15-3: Low levels indicate there is no cancer or that it may be too soon for the disease to elevate the blood levels.

WHAT IF MY TEST RESULTS ARE ABNORMAL OR OUT OF RANGE?

Please consult with your primary care physician, who may refer you to an oncologist.
