Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I recently had a blood test to check for markers of PCOS. The doctor told me that the blood test came back normal, no action was required, except for something to do with my antigens, and I was scheduled for a subsequent appointment. However, when I googled about abnormal antigens in blood, I found information related to cancer and tumors. I need peace of mind or any kind of understanding about this situation. Please help.

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read your query, and understand your concern.

I understand that receiving ambiguous information from your doctor can be concerning and lead to anxiety. However, it is important not to jump to conclusions based on internet searches, as there can be various reasons for abnormal antigen levels in the blood, not just related to cancer and tumors. Antigens are substances that stimulate the body's immune system to produce antibodies. There are many different types of antigens, and their levels can be affected by various factors. While some abnormal antigen levels may be associated with serious conditions, it is also possible for them to be related to minor or easily treatable issues. It is also essential to try to stay calm and patient until you have the opportunity to discuss the results with your doctor. Stress and anxiety can exacerbate health-related concerns, so take care of yourself during this waiting period. Remember that PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) is a complex condition, and a diagnosis is typically made based on a combination of clinical symptoms, blood tests, and imaging studies like ultrasounds.

I read your query and understand your concern.

Please feel free to ask if you have any further questions.

Thank you
