Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
A progressive rise in CEA may indicate progression of disease or metastasis.
You should have a CT scan of the chest and abdomen to rule out metastasis.
The more preferable but more expensive option is PET scan
Let me know if you have more questions.
Rate me for my services when you are done.
Thx . Sorry for delay in responding to u . Well he had a ct scan with contrast done which showed a new 15 mm lesion
Not got yet .... But do radiologists on a ct report use the word metsases at all .
the rafiologist stated:
1 new liver lesion
1 10 mm lymph node
appearances keeping with disease progression
So does disease progression mean mets ?
The 10 mm lymp node notes not really a worry right ? He wouldn't put progression just due to a lymoh node right ?
The onco said it looks cloudy so need a pet scan - what can this mean ?
Despite it being unclear , can the radiologist state disease progression ?
Oh I see so they just not basing it on the lesion soley ?
Can a steady rise be mets ? I thought high figures indicate mets ?
How can I rate u again ?
