abstract

  • An estimated 8250 new cases of testicular cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2006, with germ cell tumors (GCTs) constituting 95% of the malignant tumors arising in the testes. Although GCTs are relatively uncommon tumors, they are the most common solid tumor in men between the ages of 15 and 34 years. The worldwide incidence of these tumors has more than doubled in the past 40 years. More than 90% of all patients diagnosed with GCTs are cured, including 70% to 80% of patients with advanced tumors who are treated with chemotherapy. Standard therapy has been established at essentially all stages of management and must be closely followed to ensure the potential for cure. © Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.
