Order an at-home Ovarian Cancer Test to detect the levels of CA 125 (Cancer Antigen 125) in your blood aiding the detection of ovarian cancer or its reoccurrence. This test is a useful tool for monitoring how ovarian cancer is responding to treatment or for predicting a patient’s diagnosis post-treatment.
This prognostic biomarker is also used for fallopian tube or primary peritoneum cancers. High levels of CA 125 do not always mean cancer and can be caused by other medical conditions causing health issues. Elevated CA 125 levels are common in perimenopausal women and a variety of benign conditions.
Ovarian cancer testing requires a CT (Computerized Tomography) scan, a needle biopsy, laparoscopy, or a transvaginal ultrasound. However, a less invasive blood test for CA 125 is the standard screening test for detecting abnormally high levels in women with ovarian cancer or sometimes a benign yet troubling issue including menstruating issues, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and pelvic inflammatory disease.
CA 125 is a protein found in the blood and normal levels are 35 U/mL (units per millilitre) or lower. It is a type of tumour marker recommended for aiding the diagnosis and management of ovarian cancer, mainly if the levels are higher than 40 U/mL.
Over 250,000 women are affected by ovarian cancer every year and it has been known to be called a “silent disease” as symptoms do not always occur until the latter stages. Early detection of ovarian cancer can be difficult to diagnose, however 90% of women with advanced ovarian cancer and 50% of women with early-stage ovarian cancer have elevated levels of CA 125 in their blood.
This rapid three-step lateral flow immunoassay test uses a specimen collection capillary tube/pipette, inclusive of test buffer and a chromatographic test cassette to detect the level of CA 125 in whole blood above 40 U/mL for self-testing and is shipped directly to you.

Symptoms you might be suffering from:
Monitoring your CA 125 levels on a regular basis can detect ovarian cancer and monitor treatment response or reoccurrence, preventing undetected cancer from going untreated and symptoms from becoming worse. Reasons for using this test include:
- Family history of ovarian cancer
- Lack of appetite or feeling full rapidly after eating
- Urgent need to urinate or urinating more often than usual
- Swollen stomach or feeling bloated
- Pain or tenderness in your lower stomach or pelvic area
- Weight loss
- General fatigue
- Variety of bowel issues
Elevated levels of CA 125 will show as a positive test result on the test region (T) of the cassette and the more intense the colour, the higher the concentration of CA 125 in the sample, however any shade of colour in the test region should be considered positive.
The results can then be used to seek further medical advice, further diagnostic investigation, and to implement or monitor appropriate treatment depending on the diagnosis.
