With recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of testicular cancer (germ cell tumors), most men – especially those with early-stage tumors – can expect to survive the disease. Doctors at Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s Sidney Kimmel Center for Prostate and Urologic Cancers are among the most experienced in treating testicular cancer, caring for nearly 300 men who are diagnosed each year.
Explore our newly updated guide to testicular cancer care to learn about how our physicians diagnose and stage this type of cancer. Our specialists work as a team to plan the appropriate treatment for you – typically surgery for early-stage tumors, with the addition of chemotherapy reserved for more advanced tumors.
You can also learn about our clinical trials for men with untreated or relapsed advanced testicular cancer. In addition, our survivorship and support services feature information from our male sexual health and reproduction experts, including resources for men who want to take steps to preserve their fertility.
