CA 19-9 level greater than 600 PLEASE HELP CLARIFY!!!

Early summer my mother had a CA 19-9 along with other blood work ordered on her due to abdominal pain and back pain.  Her 19-9 came back with a level over 600 and all other lab work was normal.  

About two months ago she had another set of blood work including a 19-9 and that decreased to a little over 300 and all other labs were normal.

Last week she was test again and this time her 19-9 was 60 but she had other labs that were elevated.  
Her results were as follows:
ALT=199
AST=122
ALP=165
Bili=1.6
Ferr=444
CA 19-9= 60

I am just looking for answers as what could cause this.  Her doctor thinks could could be cancer and I just need some help and advice as what I should do.
