faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to form a fist. This helps in the buildup of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. After cleaning, the needle is inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
Cancer is a disease in which the body’s cell begins to divide uncontrollably and spread to surrounding tissues.
The common signs of cancer in men and women depend upon the type of cancer and generally include pain, unintentional weight loss, fatigue, fever, unhealed sores, changes in the skin, cough or hoarseness, unusual bleeding, and anemia.
The risk factors for cancer are increasing age, consumption of excessive alcohol, unhealthy diet, chronic inflammation, hormonal problems, immunosuppresion, infectious agents, obesity, exposure to radiation, sunlight, and consumption of tobacco.
No, the CA-125 test cannot be used for screening of ovarian cancer as high levels of CA-125 can be seen in cases of pregnancy, menstruation, endometriosis, and pelvic inflammatory disease.
