Many testicular cancers contain both seminoma and non-seminoma cells. These mixed germ cell tumors are treated as non-seminomas. In this stage, the cancer has not spread outside the testicle, and your Because seminoma cells are very sensitive to radiation, low doses can. Patients with Stage 1 testicular cancer of non-seminoma type have a primary cancer that is limited to the testes and is curable in more than 95% of cases.

Combining several risk factors led to differences in 5-year survival, that is, patients with one poor risk factor had a better chance of survival than seminomatkso with three risk factors.

When CIS of the testicle becomes invasive, czrcinoma cells are no longer just in the seminiferous tubules, they’ve grown into other structures of the testicle. You can get either 4 cycles of EP etoposide and cisplatin or 3 cycles of BEP bleomycin, etoposide, and cisplatin.
