It is important that patients have proper follow-up care following treatment for cancer of the fallopian tubes. These check-ups will generally involve a physical examination and a laboratory blood test called a CA125 assay. Often the CA125 level in a patient’s blood is high before treatment and falls during surgery and chemotherapy. If the CA125 level begins to rise again, it may be an indicator that the cancer has recurred. However, there may be other reasons, unrelated to cancer, for the CA125 level to rise.
Cancer Australia was established by the Australian Government in 2006 to benefit all Australians affected by cancer, and their families and carers. Cancer Australia aims to reduce the impact of cancer, address disparities and improve outcomes for people affected by cancer by leading and coordinating national, evidence-based interventions across the continuum of care.
