OVERVIEW


Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA)

Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA) is a protein usually present in very low ranges in the blood of adults. The CEA blood levels might also escalate in certain cases of cancers and non-cancerous (benign) conditions. A CEA test is most normally used for colorectal cancer.


Why a CEA Test is done?

A CEA test may be done for the following reasons:

If the doctor suspects there might be cancer
To find out if cancer therapy is working
To locate out if cancer has come back (recurred) after treatment


How a CEA test is performed?

A CEA test is performed through a blood test that measures the magnitude of CEA protein in the blood. A sample of blood is taken by means of inserting a needle into the vein in your arm.


What should the results mean to you?

An elevated levels of CEA Protein can happen in both cancers and non-cancerous conditions.


Cancers

The CEA blood levels are often elevated in colorectal cancer. However, it may also be elevated in different other cancers including:

BreastCancer

LungCancer

PancreaticCancer

StomachCancer

LiverCancer

OvarianCancer

After treatment, a return to a regular CEA level that had been spread is an indication of the fact that the cancer has responded to treatment.

A CEA level that rises progressively after treatment is considered that the cancer has come back (recurred).


In Non-cancerous conditions

The CEA blood level may also be elevated in non-cancerous conditions such as:

A Peptic Ulcer

Ulcerative Colitis

Rectal Polyps

Emphysema

Benign Breast Disease

Pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas)

Cholecystitis (inflammation of the gallbladder)

Smokers who do not have cancer at present may also have an elevated CEA values.


What happens if the result is abnormal?

Your physician will determine whether similar tests, procedures, follow-up care or additional therapy is needed.
