tumor markers


Recommended Posts

Started Iressa in January of 2005. the tumor markers in the blood tests continue to get better and better. Question: Have any of you had good tumor marker tests but the cancer was spreading or getting worse? The doc told us that sometimes the tumor markers are not a good indicator of the progression of the disease. Perhaps he said that to make sure we stayed in touch with reality. Just wondering what the experiences of others were. Thanks for the info. pammie

Dear Pammie,

My tumor markers are & always have been almost nonexistant. The Doctors can't use those numbers at all for me. I guess that would help to explain why it was never found till I was already in stage IV. Heaven only knows why these numbers are so effective for some & not for others. God knows the Doctors can't tell me. Oh well.

Hugs & prayers,
