Brief Answer: no need to operate Detailed Answer: Hi, CA125 is high. But not very high. Ovary which has fluid needs to be taken out and sent for cytology to rule out malignancy. If report is normal, no need to get operated with hysterectomy and removal of ovaries. But remember to keep getting screened every year. Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol
