What is CA 15.3 Test or Breast Cancer Marker Test?
Cancer Antigen (CA) 15.3 Marker Test is a blood test done to detect the signs of breast and ovarian cancers, to monitor the further treatment and to check the recurrence of cancer. This test provides a general view of cancer affecting the patient. It helps to determine the nature and type of treatment pattern to be followed for the patient.
Breast cancer is a collection of cancer cells arising from the infectious cells around the breast. Although breast cancer predominantly occurs in women, it can also affect men. Women who are above 35 and men above 50 are more likely to be affected. It is suggested that women above 35 should get a mammography done as part of their regular health screening once every two years.
