Hi cedarhouse

Thanks for your post!

Protein test for tumor markers are common, because tumor markers are found in the form of hormones, proteins or antigens (antigens are foreign substances that enter the body that the body deems harmful and the body starts to fight them off).

So a test to see if the tumors markers are in the form of any/all three are often recommended.

I hope this helps and thank you for writing !
