Chromogranin (CGA)

Chromogranin (CGA)

The protein chromogranin A (CgA) is secreted by neuroendocrine cells. These are cells that respond to nervous system inputs by releasing hormones. They can be present in all of the body's organs.

The chromogranin A (CgA) test is used as a tumour marker. To help diagnose carcinoid tumours, it can be ordered alone or combined with a 5-HIAA test. CgA can also be utilised to look for additional malignancies from neuroendocrine cells.

Why done? 

When a doctor suspects that your signs and symptoms are caused by a carcinoid tumour or another neuroendocrine tumour, a CgA test is ordered along with another testing.

The following are some possible signs and symptoms:

The face and neck are flushed (appearance of deep red colour, usually with sudden onset)

• Diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, abdominal discomfort, and evidence of intestinal obstruction are all symptoms of intestinal blockage.

• A heart rate that is quite fast

• Chest pain, wheezing, coughing, and breathing difficulties.

• This test may be ordered regularly to assess treatment efficiency and detect tumour recurrence.

Procedure: 

You'll have blood extracted from an arm vein.

It may be necessary to fast or stop taking certain drugs. Any advice from your healthcare professional or laboratory should be followed.
