I am vegetarian, Non smoker, non alcoholic, no diabetic but BP which is under control with medicine. I was taking atorvastatin which is stopped at present, LFT is normal. There is no pain in the area. How the biopsy is done, is it required. Is there any blood test or any other test to detect the presence of cancer. A blood test-AFP (Alpha fetoprotein Tumor Maker Serum) CMIA was conducted. Reading is <2.0 ng/ml. What this reading mean. How to keep watch over it. Please advise.
