Tumor marker
My husband has colon cancer and has had surgery and chemo treatments. His last ct scan and Pet scan shows nothing and tumor marker was down to 7. The tumor marker has come down to 5.5. The doctor has him doing 4 more treatments on Monday he started his 3rd one on Wednesday his marker was at 6.4 why would it go up again. Is this a bad sign?


This discussion is related to CEA tumor marker.

Deb, it can and does happen during chemo. Check cancercompass.com. They've got a couple of conversations on the subject. You can google 'CEA elevated during chemo'.
