What does this cancer antigen results indicate?

Hi. Please let me know what a 56 in a CA 125 test(normal range being 0-35)means. I've already visited my doctor and she seems not to express any concernn. However, if my level is high I know there is a possibility of cancer being developed (or developed) somewhere in my body. So what does my 56 really mean?

Hi, dear.
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. CA 125 is a marker of ovarian cancer. However your CA 125 is slightly high. It may be seen in many other conditions. But you should go for ultrasound abdomen. You should rule out possibility of ovarian cancer.
Consult your doctor and investigate accordingly.
Thanks for using health care magic.
Wish you a very good health.
