- Prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP)
- CA 125.

- Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG)
- CA 19-9.
What is a good cancer marker number? Normal range may vary somewhat depending on the brand of assay used. Levels > 10 ng/ml suggest extensive disease and levels > 20 ng/ml suggest metastatic disease.
Is CA 125 elevated in breast cancer? Elevated serum levels of CEA, CA125 and CA15-3 were identified in 13 (8.6%), 21 (13.9%) and 14 (9.3%) breast cancer cases, which are similar to those observed in other studies [16–17].
