Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA – general cancer markers)

This test measures the amount of CEA in the blood and sometimes in other body fluids. CEA is a type of tumour marker. Tumor markers are substances made by cancer cells or by normal cells in response to cancer in the body.

A high level of CEA can be a sign of certain types of cancers. These include cancers of the colon and rectum, prostate, ovary, lung, thyroid, or liver. High CEA levels may also be a sign of some noncancerous conditions, such as cirrhosis, noncancerous breast disease, and emphysema.

Creatine Kinase MB (CKMB – Cardio Vascular Disease)

CK–MB is one of three forms (or isoenzymes) of the enzyme creatine kinase (CK). CK–MB is found mostly in the heart muscle. It rises when there is any damage to heart muscle cells.

Vitamin B12

This test checks the amount of vitamin B-12 in the blood or urine to gauge the body’s overall vitamin B-12 stores. The Vitamin B12 test helps to diagnose or rule out if you may have vitamin B12–deficiency anaemia. Also known as cobalamin deficiency, this is a condition that develops when your body can’t make enough healthy red blood cells because it doesn’t have enough vitamin B12. Your body needs

Prostate-Specific Antigen Test

The PSA test is a blood test used mainly to screen for prostate cancer. The test measures the amount of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in your blood.

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)

This is usually the first test your provider will do to check for thyroid hormone imbalance. Most of the time, thyroid hormone deficiency (hypothyroidism) is associated with an elevated TSH level, while thyroid hormone excess (hyperthyroidism) is associated with a low TSH level. The thyroid makes hormones that regulate the way the body uses energy. It also plays an important role in regulating a person’s weight, body temperature, muscle strength, and even their mood.
