AbstractTumour markers are mainly measured in clinical laboratories. A distinction should be made between tumour markers and tumour-specific markers. Utmost caution should be exercised in the interpretation of tumour-marker results because of analytical interference and overlap with benign conditions. The use of a tumour marker for early detection of malignancy is challenging because of its low positive predictive value. However, with an understanding of the performance characteristics of tumour markers and correct interpretation of the results, tumour markers are useful in clinical management of diseases.
