I've had success with high dose chemo, but now my AFP is on the rise. HCG is usually the tumor marker indicative of cancer for me, but my AFP has risen before, just not without HCG also rising. My AFP is now at like 6.6, which is the high end of normal, while my HCG is less than 0.5. Last time I got a blood test my AFP was at 3-ish. even though none of my doctors seem particularly worried, I cant help but be a little agitated. I'm running out of treatment options, so a relapse would really, really suck. Does anyone know if this is normal, and im just unnecessarily concerned, or if there is reason to be worried. Also, is there anything I could be doing that would effect my AFP level?
