Not the right tests: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, the tests you reported on are not correct ones for diagnosing liver cancer. Serum alpha feto protein level may help. From the info you provided, it is unlikely that you have liver cancer.
