Does anyone know if any other medical conditions besides possible ovarian cancer can cause the OVA 1 test to be higher than normal? I am post-menopausal, have a 4" fibroid, and my OVA 1 blood test was 5.5.
Hi, @pamwil, and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Thanks for the details you've shared here, like your OVA1 blood test resulting in a 5.5, being postmenopausal and having a 4-inch fibroid.
I think some of our members who've talked about ovarian cancer and other ovarian issues might have some insights for you, like @caf132 @pauldale4 @laurieann789 and @seansfather. @berit @wandering @upartist and @johnbishop may have some thoughts, as well.
@pamwil — will you have a chance to talk with your physician about this during this upcoming week?
Hello @pamwil — I would like to add my welcome to Connect along with @lisalucier and other members. I did find a few sites that my offer some information that may help. Hopefully other members familiar with the OVA 1 test can provide additional information.
American Cancer Society – FDA Warns Against Ovarian Cancer Screening Tests:
Ovarian Cancer Center, University of California, Irvine – Ovarian Cancer Symptoms & Diagnosis:
I agree with @lisalucier that talking to your physician is best for interpreting the test results.

Yes. Thank you Lisa. I am scheduled for an MRI on April 4th. I hope to know more by then..
Thank you for your help John. I appreciate it very much.
Glad to hear that, @pamwil. Will you let us know how that goes?
Hello, @pamwil — just wanted to check back with you and see how things went with your MRI last week?
Hi, @pamwil – thinking of you today and wondering how things went with the higher than normal OVA 1 test and the MRI you had scheduled?
Hi Lisa, Thanks for asking. My laparoscopic hysterectomy went fine, my doctor said no cancer!
That is wonderful news, @pamwil. How did your recovery go after the hysterectomy?
