Hi, I'm Betti

My Oncologist ordered CEA testing at my annual visits. After about 5 years I was told it wouldn’t be necessary to order them again as it wasn’t at least in my case all that helpful

Hi, I'm Salley M O.

I am beginning to get a bit worried. My cea tumor went from 8.8 in August to 38.6 in September. I pray the ct scans were correct and I don’t have cancer any place else in the body.
