Testicular Cancer Treatment

When treated in its early stages, testicular cancer can be cured in nearly all patients. Even if the disease has spread, surgery and chemotherapy can result in survival rates of 85%. Surgery to remove the cancerous testicle is the primary treatment for localized testicular cancer. Seminoma cells are extremely sensitive to radiation, so doctors frequently use external beam radiation therapy following surgery to sterilize any cancer cells that may have spread to the pelvic or abdominal lymph nodes.
