Abstract

Disseminated testicular cancer is a highly treatable disease and approximately half of all patients can be cured with chemotherapy. The treatment is vigorous and requires the services of experienced physicians. In all phases of the disease regular follow-up examinations consisting of x-rays of the chest and tumor marker studies should be done. Chemotherapy may be useful as adjuvant treatment, but a controlled clinical trial is required to define its usefulness.
