CEA is up again

My CEA was done on Nov. 15th and it is up to 4.8. It has never been this high before. I do not smoke, never did. It has been as high as 3.5, 3.9, and 4.3. Then it will go down to 2.8, 2.6, etc. I am scheduled to get a CT scan in January. My oncologist wants me to have a colonoscopy too.

I guess my question is: Have any of you had your CEA to fluctuate back and forth like mine?

My oncologist said he had someone with a CEA of 10, and that person did not have cancer. I'm on anti-anxiety medication right now because it is really getting to me the closer I get to my CT scan date.

Any comments will be appreciated.
Thanks,
BAMc.
