what can couse to bhcg to rise? malignant/bengine?

Hello,39 yo now, I became ill 12 years ago testicular cancer including removal of the right testicle, the increase in markers(bhcg-ldh-afp) and chemotherapy since there is no evidence of disease.
In years past was BHCG lower than 10 .sometimes was lower than 5. this Year follow-up examination was bhcg=10, after one weak was=6, after another 1 weak was =10.
my onculog doc sent me to do ct of Chest abdomen and pelvis = found clear.
also sent me to do ct of brain= found clear. ultrasound to left testis=clear.
after 1 weak again bhcg=9, and after another 1 weak was =8. after 20 dayy=12
What do you think chances of malignant disease with these data?
what can couse to bhcg to rise? malignant/bengine?
