My CRP WAS JUST REPORTED AT 120!!! SHOULD I BE EXTREMELY CONCERNED?
I think most common is infection.
CRP is a test for inflammation in the body. It might be infection, or autoimmune disease like lupus or RA. Anyway, you'll need to follow your doctor for further tests. They need to find out what causes the inflammation.

Just had a Chromogranin A test. My results were 433. I have RA. Does this show infection or cancer?

The chromogranin A (CgA) test is used as a tumor marker. It may be ordered in combination with a 5-HIAA test to help diagnose carcinoid tumors. It may also be used to detect the presence of other tumors arising from neuroendocrine cells. Although it varies widely with the techniques used, the reference ranges for serum chromogranin A are as follows: less than 36.4 ng/mL (conventional unit) less than 36.4 µg/L (system international). Yours is too high. You should go to see a doctor to get tested.
