I had surgery one year ago for stage 3 rectal cancer - 2 out of 12 nodes positve. A cat scan last week shows NED, but my CEA went from 0.8 to 1.6 in the last 3 months. Should I be concerned? My onc. will order a pet scan, but she doesn't think the insurance company will want to pay. My CEA will be repeated in 1 month.
