Why is this test important?
Carcinoembryonic antigen is a protein generally found in fetal tissues, though it is present in low levels in adults. Increased levels of CEA can indicate cancer. This test is useful for identifying colon cancer recurrences after tumors have been surgically removed, or to monitor response to colon cancer treatment. CEA levels are also elevated by some other forms of cancer, including cancers of the rectum, lung, breast, liver, pancreas, stomach, and ovary.
Who should be tested?
People with a personal history of colon cancer or those receiving colon cancer treatments could benefit from this test.
