Also, I had a rise in my CEA level from 0.9 to 1.4. Should I be worried about the rise of my CEA level? Someone that I know told me the CEA test is not a reliable tumor marker. Is this true?
Otherwise, like others have said, don't worry about that small of a jump that is still well within NORMAL limits. Mine used to jump all over the place. It's not one reading but the trend that is what you have to be looking for. I know, that's easy to say when the 'trend' is seemingly going up...but next time, it could go up more and then flatten or it could go down. You just have to wait for the next test....nerve wracking as it is.
