The present study was conducted to investigate the relationship between Serum levels of Zinc(Zn), Copper(Cu), calcium(Ca) Ceruloplasmin(Cp),and Non–Ceruloplasmin-Bound Copper (NCC) in lung and liver cancer patient, by used serum of forty male,( 40 – 65 ) years aged were divided into three groups, which included liver cancer patients group composed of ten patients, lung cancer patients group composed of ten patients and twenty healthy or control groups. The results of this study showed significant increase in levels of Ceruloplasmin , copper, calcium and Non-ceruloplasmin _ bound copper in lung cancer and liver cancer groups if compare to control group. The level of Zinc (Zn) was significantly (P<0.05) decreased in patients lung and liver cancer groups if compare to control group.
