Dr, I am 35 y.o, female, mother of 3 and a master student. I have been feeling sort of sore (scale:1) on my bones, everywhere including fingers. I always feel lethargic especially and brain fog in the morning. Last 3 weeks i felt like needles prickling on my skin especially on my face, neck and earlobes. I have done full blood test and my calcium level seems normal (2.31). However the results that exceed the limit is the CA 19.9 is 38.1. Thank you in advance.

Regarding the description of your condition, the symptoms and signs that you stated are too vague. There are several questions that we need to enquire from you to explore different possibilities and making conclusions regarding your complaints.
High levels of CA 19-9 are often a sign of pancreatic cancer. But sometimes, high levels can indicate other types of cancer or certain noncancerous disorders, including cirrhosis and gallstones. Because high levels of CA 19-9 can mean different things, the test is not used by itself to screen for or diagnose cancer
