C-reactive protein: Something must be causing a chronic elevation of the CRP. A full work-up and evaluation should be revealing, but this isn't always the case. It might be time for a second opinion too... There's nothing wrong with that. After all it is YOUR health. If weight is going up, I think less about cancer, and more about metabolic diseases. Hopefully you can get help.
