Hello,

welcome and thank you for your question.

High ferritin levels can be seen in many conditions including infections and inflammations, autoimmune disease etc.

The commonest cancer which causes elevation of ferritin levels are liver cancer, colon cancer and kidney cancers. Blood cancers like leukemia can also cause increase in the ferritin level.
