My father has been diagnosed with colon cancer. Following surgery his CEA level was at 23. Over the past 6 months of chemotherapy his CEA level has went down until it reached about 3-4. This last test it had went up to over 30. Does anyone have experience with this? Is this of major concern? I've heard the numbers fluctuate but does it fluctuate that much?
Any help/insight is appreciated.
