Post-Orchiectomy Alpha Fetoprotein (AFP) Range


**Note 1**: Record the range of the alpha fetoprotein (AFP) test as documented in the patient record after orchiectomy and prior to further treatment. **Note 2**: Use the same laboratory test to record values for CS Site-Specific Factors 12 and 13. **Note 3**: A lab value expressed in micrograms/liter (ug/L) is equivalent to the same value expressed in nanograms/milliliter (ng/ml). **Note 4**: If the initial post-orchiectomy AFP test remains elevated, review the subsequent tests until normalization or plateau occurs and use that test to code this field. See Part I for further explanation of serum tumor marker half life. **Note 5**: If the post-orchiectomy AFP test is unknown but the preorchiectomy AFP test was normal, use code 990. **Note 6**: If the post-orchiectomy AFP test is unavailable but a physician's statement of the result is documented, use codes 991-993. **Note 7**: For rare cases that are treated prior to orchiectomy or an orchiectomy is not performed, code the initial AFP range in this field and not in CS Site-Specific Factor 7.
