the subject about something not sounding right im going to chime in.maybe i am in the denile stage and i know cea numbers can be decieving on some people but i just found out that my cea level in august2010 was 1.8.was told everything was normal.i had a ct scan done on jan.19,2011 by my local surgen with no cea test.he said there was 2 spots on my liver and wanted a biopsy.had that done and it came back as cancer.soooo went to my surgen who removed original cc tumor did another cat scan and ordered cea test on feb.7,2011.now,not only do i have 2 mets to my liver but he saw 1 possibly 2 spots on my lung and the results from this cea are 1.5 i would think my cea levels would be much higher if i had cancer in me....Godbless...johnnybegood
