My girlfriend just was diagnosed with Peritoneal Cancer through a CT scan done at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Her CA 125 was 35 a month ago and 51 yesterday. I am hoping that this is considered stage 1 but really don't know if the stages correspond to the CA numbers. She's scheduled for surgery Wednesday. Being that her CA was still relatively low is this a good sign or does it even really matter? She has had none of the symptoms I've read about: bloating, etc...
