@oristarA,
That depends. Often it is a reference about California.

But in the context you ask, it's shorthand for carcinoma.

@oristarA,
Beats me, Ori, but I surmise that that's the journal's name.

Sometimes it is a shortform for Canada.

In medical records, it's usually the physician's shortform for cancer.

dx: ca

diagnosis : cancer
