Testis Serum Markers: AFP (Alpha Fetoprotein) Post-Orchiectomy Range
AFP (Alpha Fetoprotein) Post-Orchiectomy Range identifies the range category of the lowest AFP value measured post-orchiectomy. AFP is a serum tumor marker that is often elevated in patients with nonseminomatous germ cell tumors of the testis. The Post-Orchiectomy lab value is used to monitor response to therapy.
AFP (Alpha Fetoprotein) Post-Orchiectomy Range is a Registry Data Collection Variable in AJCC. AFP (Alpha Fetoprotein) Post-Orchiectomy Range is used to assign the S Category Pathological and was previously collected as Testis CS SSF# 13.
|0||Within normal limits|
|1||Above normal and less than 1,000 nanograms/milliliter (ng/mL)|
|2||1,000 -10,000 ng/mL|
|3||Greater than 10,000 ng/mL|
|4||Post-Orchiectomy alpha fetoprotein (AFP) stated to be elevated|
|5||Post-Orchiectomy alpha fetoprotein (AFP) unknown or not done but pre-orchiectomy AFP was normal|
|7||Test ordered, results not in chart|
|8||Not applicable: Information not collected for this case|
(If this information is required by your standard setter, use of code 8 may result in an edit error.)
|9||Not documented in medical record|
No orchiectomy performed
AFP (Alpha Fetoprotein) Post-Orchiectomy Range not assessed or unknown if assessed
