Has anyone heard of elevated CA19-9 levels being caused by Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC)? My CA19-9 level has gone up to 939 but brushing of my bile duct show only atypical rather than cancerous cells. I am also trying to understand if I can still have a liver transplant after I have surgery to remove my bile duct. Thanks.
