AFP (Tumor Marker)


Elevated Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) levels in
medical assessments are often associated with various symptoms and medical
conditions. In cases of liver cancer or cirrhosis, common symptoms encompass
abdominal pain, jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes), weight loss, and
fatigue. For germ cell tumors, symptoms depend on the location but may include
testicular or pelvic pain, abdominal discomfort, or swelling. AFP, a tumor
marker, is used to measure AFP levels in the blood, with elevated levels
potentially signaling issues such as liver cancer, germ cell tumors, or liver
cirrhosis. However, a diagnosis should consider other clinical findings and
imaging studies for a comprehensive evaluation. Your healthcare provider will
guide further diagnostic steps based on your specific situation.
