Raised CA 27.29 and Scared Out of my Mind
I’m looking for some guidance in the interim. A little background first both my parents were diagnosed with cancer. My father suffered from pancreatic while my mother survived cervical cancer.
My BRCA results came back with 2 mutations of insignificant significance. It’s because of that result and both parents suffered from cancer, my GP likes to run bloods every so often, particularly TMs.
My most recent round found a slightly elevated CA 27.29 and she wants me to come back in and give some more blood.
I’m petrified. I keep thinking of parents journeys with cancer and I’m beyond scared that this could be the start of my own. I’m only 34 with a 7 month old. I can’t stop spiraling.
Would anyone here know why a non cancer patient’s level could be raised? Should I think that this is the start of something worse? Any advise from this amazing community would help!
