Testicular Cancer Treatment at Levine Cancer Institute

Levine Cancer Institute provides individualized treatment based on your health and the characteristics of your tumor. For many men, testicular cancer can be cured.

Standard treatment for testicular cancer is orchiectomy, which is a procedure that removes the cancerous testicle via an incision in the groin. Tissue samples from the surgery are used to stage the cancer.

Minimally invasive surgery to remove lymph nodes in the abdomen may also be performed. Radiation and chemotherapy are options, as well. Radiation is particularly effective in treating seminoma tumors, which tend to be less aggressive, while chemotherapy is used for both seminomas and nonseminomas.

Because these treatments can affect fertility, men may want to speak with their healthcare providers about banking their sperm for future use.
