Basic laboratory test package specialized for screening the main male tumor risk markers.
Tumor markers are produced by tumor cells. Our laboratory determines the concentration of proteins that may indicate some type of cancer. The increase and change in the levels of the tumor marker can be used primarily in the monitoring of the treatment of confirmed tumor patients and in the follow-up of the possible clinical progression of the tumor. The test package examines tumor markers that are more likely to affect men. Our package contains the following tests for the most basic tumor markers, in which case the increased levels may raise the suspicion of changes in the liver, colon, pancreas, testicles, prostate, lungs: AFP (liver cancer, testicular tumor), LDH (melanoma), CEA (colon, rectum, stomach, liver, pancreas, lung cancer), Total PSA, Free PSA (prostate cancer), CA 125 (pancreas, liver cancer), HE4 (lung cancer). A positive value does not necessarily mean cancer, but in this case, see your doctor to find out the reason for the increase in the marker level. A negative result does not completely rule out the presence of a tumor. The evaluation of the results and the establishment of a diagnosis are the responsibility of your treating physician.
