CA 27-29

Last revised by Daniel J Bell on 13 Aug 2018

CA 27-29 is a tumor marker and is a soluble form of glycoprotein MUC1. It may be elevated in patients with breast cancer. Tumors of the colon, stomach, kidney, lung, ovary, pancreas, uterus, and liver may also raise CA 27-29 levels.

Certain non-malignant conditions are also associated with its elevation e.g. first trimester pregnancy, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, benign breast disease, kidney disease, and liver disease.
