Patient Comments: Testicular Cancer - Treatments

What kinds of treatment, surgery, or therapy did you or your partner receive for testicular cancer?

Comment from: John A, 25-34 Male (Patient) Published: June 20

I was age 30 when diagnosed in 1990. I had an uncle with testicular cancer in the 70's who did not survive. I had the testicle removed, subsequent lymph node dissection, and 6 months of chemo. I am now a 20 YEAR survivor. Life is good.
