BIOMARKERS: -- Beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG+β) -- Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) -- Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) Testicular cancer occurs when cells in one or both testicles become malignant or cancerous in a process of uncontrolled cell growth. The testicles, also known as testes, are a part of the male reproductive system and are contained in the scrotum, a loose bag of skin underneath the penis. They produce male sex hormones and sperm for reproduction. Tumor markers are substances often found in higher-than-normal amounts in the blood, urine, or body tissues of some people with certain types of cancer. AFP is a protein produced by a fetus's liver and yolk sac. Normally, AFP levels should be low in adult men. An elevated level of AFP may indicate the presence of certain types of testicular cancer, primarily non-seminomas. Seminomas rarely produce this marker. Beta-hCG is a hormone produced during pregnancy but can also be produced by some germ cell tumors, both seminomas and non-seminomas. Elevated levels in men can indicate the presence of testicular cancer. LDH is a non-specific marker that can be elevated in many conditions, including testicular cancer. It does not confirm the presence of cancer, but its levels might help determine how much cancer is in the body .
