Depends: It depends on the type of cancer. The highest levels are seen in an uncommon entity called hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis. You may consult this site for more information on this entity. http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/healthlibrary/conditions/hematology_and_blood_disorders/hemophagocytic_lymphohistiocystosis_134,212/
