A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
Elevated CA 125 levels can be seen in many conditions and endometriosis is one of them.
Endometriotic cyst or chocolate cyst of the ovary can occur due to endometriosis of the ovary.
Treatment options vary from hormonal treatment to surgery.
Depending on the size of the cyst and severity of symptoms management can be planned according to your doctor's advice.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
