abstract

  • Patients with advanced seminoma who have normal radiographs or residual masses less than 3 cm after chemotherapy can be observed without further intervention. The following three options exist for patients with a residual mass > or = 3 cm: observation, radiotherapy, or surgical intervention. We prefer the latter to define response, resect viable tumor when possible, and direct further treatment.
