Regain Hope – Alternative Treatment For Testicular Cancer is Here!
Testicular cancer is a cancer of the testes and despite the fact that it only represents 1.1% of all male cancers, it is the most common solid tumor malignancy. It usually occurs in men between the ages of 20 and 40. Testicular cancer occurs in approximately 1 out of 25,000 men annually. In African-American men, this rate is reduced by 4 times compared to Caucasian men.
Types of Testicular Cancer:
There are two main types of testicular cancer, namely Seminoma and Nonseminoma. In addition, there are other rare types such as teratomas, yolk sac tumors, choriocarcinomas and embryonic cell carcinomas.
- Seminoma – The cure rate for a Stage I seminoma is over 95% . Treatment is usually surgery to remove the testes followed by local radiation treatments to the lymph nodes in the abdomen. Stage II seminoma is divided into two types: bulk disease (tumors over 5 cm) and non-bulky disease. Conventional treatment for non-bulky Stage II seminoma includes surgery and radiation as in Stage I Seminoma. In non-bulky Stage II seminoma conventional treatment is chemotherapy (cisplatin) and has a high cure rate of 85-95%. Stage III seminoma tumors have a 90% cure rate using surgery and radiation followed by a multi-drug chemotherapy regimen.
- Nonseminoma – The cure rate for Stage I nonseminoma is over 95%. Treatment consists of testes removal and possible removal of the lymph nodes in the abdomen. Stage II nonseminoma has a cure rate of over 95% using surgery and chemotherapy. Stage III nonseminoma has a 70% cure rate.
