Patients with gastrointestinal tumors such as pancreatic, liver, gastric, colorectal tumors and some other malignancies have been shown to have elevated serum CA 19-9 levels. Serum CA 19-9 levels may be useful for monitoring disease activity or predicting relapse following treatment.
No special preparation is needed for CA 19 - 9. Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing CA 19 - 9. Your doctor depending on your condition will give specific instructions.
