This test is used to measure the level of this protein in the body to monitor the patient’s response to the breast cancer treatment. This test is thus very important for a patient suffering from breast cancer and helps the doctor to diagnose such patient properly.
The normal value for this test varies according to gender. In males it is found to be less than 30U/ml whereas in females it should be less than 35U/ml.
The values other than the normal values are considered abnormal. If the results are abnormal then the patient might be suffering through following diseases:-
