CA 19 9 blood test is not a effective tool to diagnose cancer
CA 19 9 blood test measures the tumor associated antigen(CA19.9). Somepatients may not express CA 19-9.
CA 19 9 blood test requires a blood sample. A tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins. The skin is disinfected before needle insertion and the blood sample is collected in vacutainer.
Elevated values occur in cholangiocarcinoma, pancreatic cancer and colon cancer; they may also occur in non-cancerous conditions like cirrhosis, cholestasis and pacreatitis.
In benign conditions the result values are usually below 1000 U/mL.
Patients should do a follow-up testing preferably through the same laboratory as different assays can give different result values on the same sample
