Calcitonin Blood Test

A calcitonin test calculates the level of calcitonin, a hormone made by your thyroid, a small butterfly-shaped gland near the throat. This hormone assists in controlling how the body uses calcium. Thus, it is relevant to identify calcitonin as a type of tumor marker, as tumor markers are the substances made by cancer cells or normal cells, i.e., reaction to the presence of cancer in the body. Thus, if calcitonin is found in excess in the blood, it might create an alarming health condition of thyroid cancer, scientifically called medullary thyroid cancer( MTC).

Why do you need to undergo a Calcitonin Test? 

If you have had surgery to remove a thyroid tumor known as medullary thyroid cancer, this is a common indication that you should get the test. The test tells your doctor whether the tumor has returned or spread throughout your body. As Calcitonin’s primary function is to-

  • Helps in your nerves work 
  • Helps your heart work properly 
  • Help your blood clot in case you are bleeding 
  • Help to make your muscles squeeze together. 

Thus, To avoid the adverse effects of chronic disorders, it is critical to schedule a calcitonin test at the appropriate time. 

Similar conditions that call for a test 

  • If you have been treated for medullary thyroid cancer. This test helps to determine whether the treatment is working or not.
  • Have already completed the cancer treatment but, to ensure that the tumor does not develop back
  • Have a family history of Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 2 

Signs and symptoms that signify the right time to undergo a Calcitonin Test:

Usually, a calcitonin test is conducted when you are diagnosed with cancer. Still, it is also suggested to undergo this test when you experience-

  • Pain in your throat or neck 
  • Change to your voice such as hoarseness 
  • Complications in swallowing 
  • Swollen lymph nodes in your neck 
  • A lump in the front of your neck 

Specified Calcitonin Test levels 

Normal Level- Though the levels vary from man to woman. Still, the estimated normal level is calculated as less than 10 pg/mL. 

Abnormal Level- when the levels calculated equal to or greater than 10 pg/mL. They are determined as abnormal levels. 

These abnormal level results due to-

  • Lung Cancer 
  • VIPoma 
  • Insulinoma 
  • Medullary cancer of the thyroid (most common)
  • Kidney diseases 
  • Obesity 
  • Smoking
  • Consumption of Excess medication to stop stomach acid production. 

When these abnormal calcitonin levels are detected, they can lead to severe illnesses that can last much longer in your life. Therefore, don’t be a doctor by not taking the primitive steps at the right time. Follow your doctor’s advice and plan for a calcitonin test right away.
