Testicular cancer


The usual symptom of testicular cancer is a nodule found by the patient in either of the testicles. Testicular cancer is divided into two types: seminomas and non-seminomas.

The disease is treated by orchiectomy (removal of the testicle). This treatment may be complemented with chemotherapy and, occasionally, radiation therapy. Disseminated testicular cancer is treated with chemotherapy.

The prognosis of patients with testicular cancer is generally good. The treatment plan is always individualized for each patient.
