Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

You're ALT and AST are elevated but nothing about those numbers suggests that you need to be seen by an oncologist.

You will likely need a hepatitis panel and a liver ultrasound and then we'll know why your liver enzymes are elevated.

The most common reason for this is fatty liver.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating (bonus appreciated) as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.

Thank you!
