The Outlook For Testicular CancerWednesday, April 25, 2012 - 15:14
The outlook for testicular cancer is excellent.
- Researchers have found more and better ways to diagnose and treat this disease, and recovery has dramatically improved.
- The majority of men treated for testicular cancer today are cured by their initial treatment.
- Many of those who experience a recurrence can be cured as well.
- Doctors emphasize that, while the cure rate is very high for all types and stages of testicular cancer, many of the drastic measures undertaken to cure later-stage disease can be avoided if the cancer is diagnosed early.
The best way to find testicular cancer is through regular self-examination.
