How do lifestyle factors and exposure to environmental substances affect our cancer risk?

My husband was diagnosed with with stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer that spread to the liver last May. His liver is covered in tumors and is inoperable. His C19 9s went up to 965 from 225. About 4 months ago his c19 9s began to plumit. They are now 176. His CT scans still show the same amount of tumors with a few new small ones. He has acitis and has been on chemo since last June. He has lost over 50 pounds. He is having no pain at all, just the achey from the chemo. He can't eat much because everything tastes bitter or like gun metal. He tires easily and has some insomnia. But he is still mildly active. What's with the contradiction on the c19 9s and the CT scans. Why are the C19 9s going down?
