Cancer Markers

Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body. Cancerous cells are also called malignant cells Cancer grows out of normal cells in the body. Normal cells multiply when the body needs them, and die when the body doesn't need them. Cancer appears to occur when the growth of cells in the body is out of control and cells divide too quickly. It can also occur when cells forget how to die.

There are many different kinds of cancers. Cancer can develop in almost any organ or tissue, such as the lung, colon, breast, skin, bones, or nerve tissue.

However, the cause of many cancers remains unknown.

The three most common cancers in men are:

  • Colon cancer

In women, the three most common cancers are:

  • Breast cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  1. Cancer marker Package Includes the following tests-
  2. Total PSA - Prostate Specific Antigen may help detect prostate cancer early. PSA (prostate specific antigen) is a substance made only by the prostate. An elevated level may indicate cancer before the tumor is large enough to raise a bump that a doctor can feel during a check-up.
  3. HCG
  4. AFP - levels are often elevated in liver cancers (hepatocellular) and testicular cancers (non-seminomatous). Raised levels are also present during pregnancy or some gastrointestinal cancers.
  5. CA125 - CA125 has become a widely used tumor marker which is measured most often in women with cancers of the reproductive system including the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries. Other cancers that may cause abnormal CA125 levels include cancer of the pancreas, lungs, breast and colon.
