Paper Title: False-Positive Tumor Markers: CA 15-3 and CEA in a Patient with Breast Carcinoma Secondary to Inflamed Mediastinal Lymph Nodes: A clinical case

Abstract: False-positive tumor markers occur when tests for specific proteins, known as tumor markers, reveal elevated levels of these proteins in the blood or other tissues. This can be mistakenly interpreted as an indication of cancer. Various factors can contribute to false-positive results, including other diseases like inflammatory processes or infections, as well as factors such as smoking, age, gender, or potential errors in test execution. While elevated levels of tumor markers can suggest the presence of cancer, they are not definitive diagnostic tools on their own. Further testing is typically required to confirm the presence of cancer.
