A study of cyst fluid and plasma carcinoembryonic antigen in patients with cystic ovarian neoplasms.

Abstract

Cyst fluid and plasma carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) levels were measured in 11 patients with ovarian cyst-adenocarcinoma and in 16 patients with benign ovarian neoplasms. In patients with ovarian cancer, plasma CEA levels were not elevated above 2.5 ng/ml unless cyst fluid CEA levels were 4 to 16 mu-g/ml. In this series, cystic and plasma CEA levels were… (More)
