Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA)

Measuring the activity of the carcinoma in the body

A high level of CEA in adults can be a sign of certain types of cancers in organs like the colon and rectum, prostate, ovary, lung, thyroid, or liver. The CEA test measures the level of CEA in the patient blood including treatment response and recurrence of cancer patients.
