CEA level at time of diagnosis was 5.0 CEA at end of chemo was 4.6. Went to oncologist last week and CEA is 4.7. When they took it, I asked what number we were looking for and was told "anything under a 4". Well, it's not under 4 and now he says not to worry about it and we'll test it again in 12 weeks. Well, I am worried!

Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA) Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA) CEA is a large family of 36 different, but related, glycoproteins, which are part of the immunoglobulin superfamily. The human CEA gene family is clustered on chromosome 19q and comprises 29 genes. Seven of these 29 genes code for CEA glycoproteins.
I was diagnosed with colon cancer in January 2007 after a malignant polyp showed up on my routine colonoscopy - CEA 4.7. At the end of chemo mine dropped to 2.4. During most of treatment I was between 2.9 and 3.4. Six months ago mine went up to 4.4 and has been there for 5 months -3 scans and 4 cea tests. For me, it is not a good indicator.
[cancer] CEA levels are up, this is (probably) very bad news. Got this email from my oncologist yesterday, excerpted and edit slightly for clarity: Your CEA is up slightly to 4.6. I think we should get a CT scan the week of Nov 19th to see what is going on. This is not good news, and is probably very bad news.

Doctors don't use the CEA test to make a first-time diagnosis of cancer. This test isn't an accurate way to screen for it because many other diseases can cause the levels of this protein to rise.
