Your numbers seem quite small and I would not worry from these small disparities, since they might just fall within the standard error of the test. And most importantly, they can go up during chemo when cancer cells are dying and CEA/CA19-9 can increase as they are released from dying cells. This is why it is sometimes misleading to check the markers too often... like every month or less is pretty often. We used to only check them at the end of a complete cycle of chemo (every 2-3 months?) or if new symptoms/problems developed. A

So let us know how your CT scan goes. Our fingers are crossed for you!!
