    What is the CA 15-3 (Breast Cancer Marker) test?
    Cancer Antigen 15-3 (CA 15-3) is a protein that is produced in normal breast cells. In many people with a cancerous breast tumour, there is an increased production of CA 15-3 and the related cancer antigen 27.29. CA 15-3 does not cause cancer; rather, it is shed by the tumour cells and enters the bloodstream.
    When is the CA 15-3 (Breast Cancer Marker) test recommended?

It is used to measure how the breast cancer treatment is working and look for cancer that has come back, or recurred, after the treatment.CA 15-3 is usually not ordered when the breast cancer is detectable, or early before it has spread (metastasized) because values will not be elevated in the majority of early cancers.
