Alpha Fetoprotein Tumor Marker

Why is this test important?

The Alpha Fetoprotein tumor marker test is used to monitor treatment for certain cancers of the liver, testes and ovaries which produce Alpha Fetoprotein.  It may also be used in combination with imaging studies and physical exams to help diagnose certain cancers.  It should not be used as a screening test because some cancers do not produce AFP and increased AFP levels does not always mean a person has or will develop cancer. 

Who should be tested?

People who suffer from chronic liver disease such as hepatitis B and cirrhosis have an elevated risk for developing liver cancer, or people currently undergoing treatment for certain cancers of the liver, ovary and testes, or when cancer of the liver, ovaries or testes is suspected through detecting an abnormal mass.
