Interpretations

  • When CEA levels are initially elevated and then decrease to normal after therapy, it means that the cancer has been successfully treated. A rising CEA level is often the first sign of tumor recurrence 
  • Smaller or early stage tumors are associated with normal or only slightly elevated CEA. Larger tumors have high CEA levels
