Testis Serum Markers: AFP (Alpha Fetoprotein) Pre-Orchiectomy Range
AFP (Alpha Fetoprotein) Pre-Orchiectomy Range identifies the range category of the highest AFP value measured prior to treatment. AFP is a serum tumor marker that is often elevated in patients with nonseminomatous germ cell tumors of the testis.
AFP (Alpha Fetoprotein) Pre-Orchiectomy Range is a Registry Data Collection Variable in AJCC. AFP (Alpha Fetoprotein) Pre-Orchiectomy Range is used to assign the S Category Clinical and was previously collected as Testis CS SSF# 7.
|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||Pre-Orchiectomy alpha fetoprotein (AFP) stated to be elevated|
|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 AFP (Alpha Fetoprotein) Pre-Orchiectomy Range not assessed or unknown if assessed|
