I would like to receive additional information from Levine Cancer Institute.

The American Cancer Society estimates that approximately 8,480 new cases of testicular cancer will be diagnosed in the United States this year.

In recent years, much progress has been made in treating testicular cancer. Surgical methods have been refined, and we know more about the best way to use chemotherapy and radiation to treat different types of testicular cancer.

Testicular Cancer Treatment

After testicular cancer is diagnosed and staged, your cancer care team will discuss treatment options with you. As always, treatment approaches are reviewed for each stage of cancer.


Surgery to remove a cancerous testicle is called orchiectomy. The testicle is removed through an incision in the groin, and tissue samples are examined to determine the stage of the cancer.

Surgery for some patients may also involve the removal of lymph nodes in the abdominal area. This procedure can also be done with laparoscopy, a minimally invasive surgery technique that uses much smaller incisions.

These surgical procedures may affect fertility, so patients may want to discuss sperm-banking with their doctor. These patients may be able to have their sperm cells collected before cancer treatment and frozen for future use.

For more information on testicular cancer treatment, please contact McKay Urology at 704-355-8686.
