Re: New member.

I'll be your friend! Good luck on your journey! I'm in the medical field also so I know what you mean about everyone thinks you know a lot more than a non medical person. I just flat admit to them I don't know when I don't know. I've learned a lot in my 2 years!

Re: Probably lung mets

I'm just guessing but possibly the interventional radiologist will attempt to do a biopsy but that it will be hard to obtain due to the location. Treatment will be determined after biopsy???

Re: CEA increasing trend

I too worry about my cea since it is a marker for me. Mine is on the upper limit of normal so until the next level is checked I'll be worrying. Can't help it.
