Dr's office just called. My results on my Tumors Markers Blood Test are 18. "Normal" range on cancer patients is 30-38. The lower the number the better!

Just got a call from my Onc. regarding my blood results two days ago.  Have been off chemo for 3 weeks, my tumor markers are elevated.  Should be 38 instead it is 41.  WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?????    I am being scheduled for a PET SCAN....  Wish me luck you wonderful and precious people.

Mary, it may not mean a thing. However, it is always best to be vigilant. Good luck and keep us posted.

Blood test.  Office called me 2 days later to inform that it was just a bit high and wanted to schedule a Pet Scan.  They informed me they will call me with the schedule and they never called me back.  It's been more than a month.  My PCP told me not to worry.  It could have been high because of remnants from chemo.
