Sorry if my question is dumb. but is possible to have recurrence with normal CEA/ CA19-9? i know anything is possible with the disease, but just want to know from your experience. CEA was never a good marker for my wife to begin with. Her last CEA in May was 1.5 ( I think!) and now it is 1.20. She had her yearly Colonoscopy in August, which was clear. BUt her CT scan showed a 6mm lung nodule in lung base. The Onc ordered another thorax CT and it showed 2 spts, 7mm and 6mm!
They are still not sure what they are, and want to repeat the scan in 2 months time.
Sorry if this question has been asked before, but i would appreciate your input.
Thanks in advance..
