Hi nervous  here my sis age 61 had her Colonoscopy had severe Anemia,  they found a mass in her upper Colon, they got biopsy were waiting on, the Doc ordered her a PET/CT scan which is on 10-8, we recd her CEA level its 92.3 which I know is high, does anyone know if the CEA level can be high and cancer (if it is) be intact in colon or does CEA high level mean it may have spread outside of Colon?  Trying to be prepared what's due to come. Thanks in advance for anyone who may know. Cathy

Benign conditions which can elevate CEA include smoking, infections, inflammatory bowel disease, pancreatitis, cirrhosis of the liver, and some benign tumors in the same organs in which an elevated CEA indicates cancer.
