Hi..
Chromogranin A is a tumor marker to rule out Carcinoid tumours but in case if there is some doubt as 5-HIAA is negative that is commonly used in combination with Chromogranin A.

So for further confirmation you can get further tests like MRI or CT Scan done along with nuclear scan and octreoscan for further confirmation..

Biopsy should also be done..

Hope this helps..

Regards.
