Testis Serum Markers: AFP (Alpha Fetoprotein) Post-Orchiectomy Lab Value
AFP (Alpha Fetoprotein) Post-Orchiectomy Lab Value refers to 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 Lab Value is a Registry Data Collection Variable in AJCC. It was previously collected as Testis CS SSF# 12.
