Some people's markers are not reactive, meaning that they always stay in the 'normal' range (0-37 is what I've heard). The marker has nothing to do with the size of the tumor, it has to do with the amount of antigen a tumor is producing.

Yes - it's the trend that matters most if one's tumor marker is reactive (which your mom's is!). This is wonderful news - I hope your mom is blowing the brains out of that tumor!!!

Maria P.S. Some people have posted markers that are in the hundreds of thousands.
