It was more than 80 percent correct in spotting cancerous nodules, but accuracy still needs improving
by Louisas on Mon Jan 28, 2013 05:15 PM
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.
