Abstract Cancer remains the second leading cause of death in developed countries, and the incidence of certain tumors is increasing despite emphasis on prevention and screening. Tumor markers are biologic or biochemical substances that are produced by tumor cells and then secreted into the circulation in detectable amounts. This article covers some of the more common tumor markers currently being utilized for diagnostic and prognostic purposes.
