Abstract

Most patients who present with testicular cancer are cured. Because this is a disease of predominantly young men, after curative therapy these men survive for many years. In other cancers, treatment-related disease has been noted to appear many years after successful therapy. Therefore, the question of whether or not therapy-related cancers occur in testicular cancer is especially pertinent.
