This test uses a probe molecule that has an attached fluorescent tag; when the HER-2/neu gene is present, the probe binds to the gene and shines brightly. The number of genes can be counted using a special fluorescent light microscope. Cancer Antigen or CA test measures the level of CA in the blood. It is a protein produced by normal breast cells. If the levels if it increases, it may indicate cancerous breast tumors. It is a non-specific test for breast cancer as levels of CA can also increase in other types of cancer.
