is it possible to have an elevated CEA solely due to to smoking

I have exstensive medical problems. But recently had a CEA that came out to 8.8. I have had 2 tests in the past but they remained below 5. Would the elevation possibly solely be due to smoking? and i have a 6cm adnexal lesion. Is it possible to have an elevated CEA due to the mass and have a normal CA125?
