Help someone....I am feeling fine.  But I went for my 3 month reg check and my CEA level rose from 2.9 to 4.9

My oncologist wants that level rechecked in 6 weeks.

I am a smoker, sorry, but I was told that the norm could be from 4-8.

Can I get some input about those levels?  No lectures pleaseeee....Fran
