[MOL] CEA TEST RESULTS



MY WIFE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH METATASTIC COLON CANCER 4 YEARS AGO.  AFTER 
UNDERGOING SEVERAL SURGERIES, 1 YEAR OF CHEMOTHERAPY AND 3 MONTHS OF 
RADIATION, SHE HAS BEEN CANCER-FREE FOR ALMOST TWO YEARS.

ROUTINE BLOOD TEST SHOWED THAT HER CEA LEVEL HAD INCREASED TO 10.  CAT SCAN 
WAS NEGATIVE, THE DOCTOR NOW RECOMMENDS A PET SCAN.

WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF A 10 CEA READING?
