Hello everyone. My father (he is 45, doesn't smoke, drink or do drugs) has been having stomach and back pains lately , and has had dark urine and white looking stool for the past month now, and finally decided to visit a doctor yesterday. They drew some blood and sent it back, and this is what his test results were.

alkaline level: 161,
ALT: 254,
AST: 153
and BR (bilirubin): 5.1

I was wondering if anyone here has had any of these same symptons and if I should be worried about cancer. My father was diagnosed with tounge cancer in 2004, and received treatment from M.D. anderson and was thankfully cured. Should I be worried about cancer? Anytime he gets sick, it scares everyone because we always think "oh no, cancer" and i can't get it off my mind. So any information or help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
