I'm three months out of chemo all was great!  Saw my oncologist 6 weeks ago blood work perfect.  I saw him again today tumor marker elevated.  He wanted to redo test in two weeks, we asked for a Pet Scan.  I am trying not to worry, but I can't stop thinking about it.  

Any input?

I do know there are many reasons tumor markers can be elevated besides cancer. That is why not all oncologists look at them. Mine were elevated in December 2012 after chemo, I had a PET scan and all was fine. Hoping all is well for you!
