What causes elevated CA levels with history of ovarian cancer?
Wait for a month
I understand your concerns about possibility of ovarian cancer.
This is unlikely to be cancer and ovulation is a possibility. You should not panic till you repeat ultrasound scan next month with CA 125.
You are right about removal of ovaries at such young age. It is likely to cause effects like osteoporosis. But if you have had no family history of breast or ovarian cancer, I suggest you to wait for a month. Don't opt for bilateral salpingo oophorectomy.
Let me know if you need any more clarification.
Maybe I ask why do you strongly suggest I do not choose for bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy? (Despite risk of getting osteoporosis and cardiovascular risk). I am already taking vitamins for bone... And excercising rather regularly....won't that help?
Unnecessary surgery is not warranted
No matter how many supplements you take, natural body defence mechanism are the best. Nothing is going to replace the protection given by hormones.
Moreover it will become cumbersome eating tablets all your life.
Unless there is proven cancer diagnosis, I am against unnecessary surgeries. Simple solution is No cancer = No surgery.
Hence please repeat ultrasound scan after one week and then decide on surgery.
Let me know if you need any more help.
