abstract

  • Ninety five percent of malignant tumors arising in the testes are germ cell tumors (GCTs). Although GCTs are relatively uncommon tumors, comprising only 2% of all human malignancies, they constitute the most common solid tumor in men between 15 and 34. Additionally, the worldwide incidence of these tumors has more than doubled in the past 40 years. More than 90% of all patients diagnosed with GCT are cured, but a delay in diagnosis can correlate with a higher stage at presentation. Standard therapy has been developed for essentially all stages of management and must be closely followed to ensure the potential for cure. © Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.
