I'm worrying so much about it but what makes me think it's not that bad that at least in our and your cases CEA has been rising for long period and met or whatever we have is not that aggressive..
What do your doctors say about this? How your lymph node is going to be treated?
Before the PET and biopsy confirmed cancer, I was thinking that the rising CEA could be something triggered by Covid vaccine or it could be because of lab test assay getting old and recording erroneous values. I was wrong. Did your mother get a Covid vaccine early this year? Was there some other infection or sickness? All those could raise CEA.
