In brief: HCC evaluation

AFP = Alpha fetoprotein is a test that can be used to evaluate for hepatocellular carcinoma (hcc).
It is also elevated in some germ cell tumors. AFP "screening" is generally reserved for those with liver disease such as cirrhosis which may be from alcohol or other liver toxins.
