very high cea result

My Mom just had a cea test to check for colon cancer recurrence. Last Dec it was 24.7 but nothing showed on the CAT scan they did. The new reading is 391.3 just done 2 weeks ago. She does not want any treatment as my Dad passed away May 1st. and she is ok with joining him. Does anyone know a possible time frame- months, a year?

Re: very high cea result

You're assuming she is dying then? Has the doctor told her the colon cancer has returned? CEA levels can be affected by other things too. Have her ask for a new CT scan (whether or not she wants treatment after that she should know what she's up against).
