alkaline phosphate reading

What causes high alkaline phosphate readings? I have had a liver scan and bone density test and both have been good. What else could cause this?

Have they ruled out Paget's disease, hyperparathyroidism, osteomalacia, bone tumors?

I thought it was a sign of bone cancer. At least thats what the docs told my dad when his levels were high.
