abstract

  • With extended followup 74% of men with clinical stage I (T1) nonseminomatous germ cell tumor of the testis were cured by orchiectomy alone, and cure rates approached 90% when patients with predominant embryonal carcinoma histology or vascular invasion were excluded from surveillance. These findings support management by surveillance alone in a highly select cohort of men who have clinical stage I (T1) nonseminomatous germ cell tumor of the testis, normal serum markers following orchiectomy and neither predominant embryonal carcinoma or vascular invasion on histology.
