    Not sure
    As I understand it inflammation can cause a spike in CEA. Things like infections do that.

    Being in the sun a lot shouldn't make a difference, unless if you got toxicity? Did you get sick from too much sun? Severe sunburns, or heatstroke?

    seems odd..
    That seems like an awfully big increase to me. I know it isn't easy, but try to wait until you can be retested to get too freaked out. Easier said than done, I know.
    Best wishes,
