Interpretation of Readings
Interpretation of Readings of Chorionic Gonadotrophin Urinalyses
Levels can reach up to 10,000 int. units or more especially in testicular cancer, some uterine cancers(H mole and choriocarcinoma) and germ cell tumor. However most other cancers have results anywhere from 50 to 80 or 90 IU. The test cannot stage the cancer. However, when done like once a month or once every two months, one can monitor the progress of the tumor as well as its response to treatment.
When a reading of index + 4 is made, it means that the result is above 50 IU and is positive. But if a reading of index +/-3 is made, it means that the result is below 50 IU and is essentially negative.
