Understanding CA19.9 in Mysore


What is CA19.9 in Mysore?

A CA19.9 test measures the levels of a specific protein called cancer antigen (CA19.9) in the blood. This protein is associated with certain types of cancer, most notably affecting the pancreas. Elevated levels of CA 19.9 in the blood are frequently associated with pancreatic tumors. However, elevated levels can also be seen in various other cancers, including colorectal, gastric, hepatobiliary, and ovarian cancer, and in some non-cancerous conditions such as pancreatitis, cirrhosis, and benign gallbladder disease. This test is available at an affordable price in Mysore with Tata 1mg labs. 

This test is not standalone; other confirmatory procedures, such as imaging studies or biopsies, are often necessary to validate cancer diagnosis. CA19.9 test, when integrated into a comprehensive clinical approach, contributes significantly to the timely identification and treatment of cancers, ultimately impacting treatment outcomes.

What does CA19.9 measure?

A CA19.9 test measures the level of a specific tumor marker called CA 19.9 in the blood, often associated with gastrointestinal cancers, particularly pancreatic cancer. This biomarker is produced by certain cells in the body, specifically epithelial cells. These cells are found in various tissues, including the gastrointestinal tract. Elevated levels of CA 19.9 are often associated with cancers that involve these tissues, such as pancreatic, colorectal, and gastric cancers. However, CA 19.9 can also be produced by non-cancerous conditions, impacting its specificity as a diagnostic marker. For a comprehensive evaluation, it is advised to consider other diagnostic tests in conjunction with a CA19.9 test and consult a doctor for a proper understanding of the test results.
