I recently received a forwarded "letter" from a woman who says she was mistakenly diagnosed with IBS (symptoms included bloating with alternating C/D) when she really had a peritoneal (ovarian?)cancer. The cancer was discovered by taking the CA-125 blood test. Is this a test that we IBSers should have done?
(am not a cancer alarmist here, but rather curious about the mis-connection and preferred some level-headed input)
Thanks,
A.
