    Oh No

    Mother died of breast cancer in her 40's. However I was negative for BRCA1 or BRCA2.

    CA27.29 has risen12 points in 6 months from 41 to 53

    Oh No

    I am worried that now after almost 5 years cancer free with no symptoms and perfect routine blood work that the CA27.29 rise may indicate a recurrence. Confused about the reliability of the test versus the anxiety it creates.
