Can I Get Rectal Cancer At The Age Of 20 Years
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
What CEA value conisdered a risk of rectal cancer stage 1 recurr. Preoper the value is 2.2 and since two years its arround .7?
Be careful..: Do not put too much value on a blood test by itself. CEA of 3 or less is considered "normal". Smokers have higher CEAs; up to 5, maybe 10. Anything higher than that is suspicious but by no means diagnostic of recurrence. So called "tumor markers" sometimes go up in non malignant diseases or even for no detectable reason at all. Scans and sometimes biopsies are needed to confirm cancer. Best 2U! ...Read more

Cancer by definition is the growth in size and number in an unregulated manner of a cell line that has developed a mutation. The mutation is passed through the offspring which accumulate more and more mutations. The defining factor is that the cells act immortal as compared to normal cells that have a programmed lifespan. In the rectum this can occur in the cells that ...Read more
