Why do they wait so long to give tumor marker tests? My husband started complaining in July of 1999 of pain in the right side.He insisted something was wrong but they couldn't figure out what wth all kinds of tests.Then in March of 2000 they did the CA 19-9 and it was a whopping 4200. He died in August of 2000.
