What does your doctor say? Were the levels drawn at different places?

My husbands cea fluctuates a lot, large amounts, the doctor said some tumors give off more, he goes more by ct scan results. Have found it is best to let the doctors pay attention to the numbers.

Our doctor feels pretty much the same way. He tells us the cea test is an old way to do things and that the scan is more accurate.
