hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) Pre-Orchiectomy Range


**Note 1:** Physician statement of the hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) Pre-Orchiectomy Range can be used to code this data item when no other information is available. **Note 2:** Record the range of the highest hCG test result documented in the medical record **prior to orchiectomy** or prior to any systemic treatment. The lab value may be documented in a lab report, history and physical, or clinical statement in the pathology report. **Note 3:** A lab value expressed in International Units/liter (IU/L) is equivalent to the same value expressed in milli-International Units/milliliter (mIU/mL). **Note 4:** The same laboratory test should be used to record information in hCG Pre-orchiectomy Lab Value [NAACCR Data Item #3848].
