neoplasm panel

neoplasm panel

A battery of tests considered to be the most cost-efficient means of delineating a malignancy of unknown origin—e.g., measurement of acid phosphatase, alkaline phosphatase, AFP, CEA, hCG, PSA.
 
Because of the low yield of these assays, chemical cancer screens have little role in the early diagnosis of malignancy, and when negative introduce a false sense of security that malignancy is not present.
