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

HI everyone, I hope some one can explain to me why my father's CEA has dropped over the past 6 months but his most recent CT shows "vast progression". He was in the 800s and currently is 74. He was put on Cetuximab about 6 months ago. Can the CT show a false progression? Has anyone had that experience? My father has stage IV colon cancer--mets to liver and lungs. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
