General Information

Alpha-fetoprotein is a tumor marker used to diagnose specific tumors and liver lesions. It is also relevant in pregnant women to detect congenital anomalies of the child.

Determination of alpha-fetoprotein together with ultrasound examination data is a screening tool in the diagnostics of hepatocellular carcinoma. In isolation, this test does not serve as a diagnostic criterion. It is necessary to use it in combination with other studies to get a complete picture.

Normally, the level of alpha-fetoprotein in the body is low. Its increase may not indicate this or that pathology, if we do not have other data and research results to interpret.

Alpha-fetoprotein is commonly used to confirm the diagnostics of cancer and to monitor a confirmed diagnostics. The study is prescribed for chronic liver diseases - hepatitis and cirrhosis, as well as tumors of germinal origin (ovary, testicles).

Elevated levels of alpha-fetoprotein in pregnant women are used to screen for birth defects.



The norm does not exceed 20 ng/ml. An increase in the index above 400ng/ml is a reason to suspect liver damage or cancerous tumors.

When should we take the test?

When ovarian, testicular tumors are suspected, or to monitor a diagnosed tumor

In case of chronic liver damage (hepatitis, cirrhosis)

After the end of chemotherapy, during periodic checks


Possible interpretation of the results

Alpha-fetoprotein is often determined together with other tumor markers, such as: beta-chorionic gonadotropin and lactate dehydrogenase, to diagnose tumors developed from germ cells, to determine the course of treatment and to observe the dynamics.

With chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis, the risk of developing liver cancer is high. A sudden sharp increase in the level of alpha-fetoprotein can be a sign of liver cancer.
