Tumor markers

My tumor ca27.29 has been going up since last may. It went up a little. Then it almost doubled then doubled again. Then was out of the normal range and still told not to worry. I was told the ct scan looked stable as far as the lesions. But was told nothing about why this might be happening, or plans for doing scans more often. I tried to get the nurse to give me some reasons as to why there has been a continual progression. She said maybe it was due to inflammation. What does that mean? As far as my diet and exercise nothing has changed much

Ok you know nurses can’t give you a straight answer, well for one thing they are not doctors. Come rate piano ask your doctor. I know it will sound like I change doctors at a drop of a hat but I don’t. I had a doctors that wouldn’t listen to me but I finally couldn’t stand it anymore because I knew something wasn’t right. This is how I knew something wasn’t right I kept on tripping, I had gone partially blind in my right eye. I demanded to find out what was going on with my body. I had an MRI done to find out I have MS. The doctor I had told me it was woman probables.. I switched doctors. I am not saying for you to do that, what I want to say to you get a copy of your x-rays and anything else you had done and go to another doctor for a second opinion.Good luck.
