CEA tumor marker
Tumor markers are substances, usually proteins, that the body makes in response to cancer or that are made by the cancer itself.
Please confirm this in the comments during the order: "I am adequately informed and accept the possibility that mentally distressing results may be found. I will discuss this result myself with my treating physician viz: (name of your treating physician)."
Some tumor markers belong to one type of cancer; others occur in multiple types. These substances do not prove the presence of a tumor: we also find them in other diseases and even in healthy people. So the result alone does not say everything. Tumor markers can help us make a diagnosis, but only in combination with other research. The substances tell a hospital especially a lot about the course of the disease.
