VitaHealth Analysis Expanded Cancer Panel – Female
What’s it used for?
The test is used to provide information regarding indicators for three common cancers that affect women, including ovarian, colon, rectal, and breast cancer.
The presence of the carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) in the blood may indicate certain kinds of cancers, typically colon and rectal, but sometimes pancreas, breast or lung. Cancer antigen (CA) 125 and CA 27-29 are tumor markers for ovarian cancer and breast cancer respectively.
