Testicular Cancer Markers

  • Paul H. Lange
Part of the Contemporary Biomedicine book series (CB, volume 2)

Abstract

In perhaps no other human malignancy have the potential value and drawbacks of tumor markers become as evident as they have during the recent experience with serum alphafetoprotein (AFP) and human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) in testicular cancer. At present, these two markers, when used together, are the best available in clinical oncology.
