Memorial Sloan Kettering experts -- radiologist and cancer survivor Laura Liberman, psychiatrist Matthew Doolittle, and psychologist Katherine DuHamel -- discuss apprehension about scans and procedures, and offer tips to identify and manage “scanxiety.”
After testicular cancer, lifelong surveillance is crucial. Once your treatment is complete, your doctor will likely recommend that you perform self-exams and return for regular checkups.
During these checkups, your doctor will examine the unaffected testicle for any lumps or abnormalities and possibly recommend periodic blood tests to look for tumor markers and order regular chest x-rays or CT scans to detect any tumors.
