    After FDG PET/CT my oncologist decided my mildly elevated aFP possibly hereditary and so he offered me to choose surveilance or 2 cycles of carboplatin.Elevated aFP in seminonas are rare so we asked re-examination of pathology and results was same '' Pure Seminoma no invasion''.I choose surveilance and my protocol is regular blood tests chest x-ray and DCE MRI in every 3 moths

    well, you AFP is higher than normal, but under the 25 that is considered the point where they assume TC is back. It's probably safe to assume you are one of those who run high naturally, but be sure they keep monitoring regularly going forward. A steady rise is what will signal problems, your up & down results probably mean nothiing.
