The treatment for suspected testicular tumours is the surgical removal of the affected testicle. Surgery is an important part of the diagnosis and treatment of testicular cancer.
Radical orchiectomy consists of the surgical removal of one or both affected testicles via the inguinal route, followed by an anatomopathological analysis to identify the type of tumour. This information will help the medical professionals to choose the most appropriate form of treatment for the patient.
After surgery, some patients may require treatment with chemotherapy or radiotherapy, which generates an excellent response in the vast majority of cases. These treatments are often prescribed after surgery in order to target remaining cancer cells that may have spread to other parts of the body, such as lymph nodes.
A detailed initial extension study, appropriate early treatment and strict follow-up are the pillars that help to ensure high survival rate and quality of life for these patients.
