Testicular cancer is cancer that starts in the testicles, the male reproductive glands located in the scrotum.
Wake Forest Baptist Approach
A multi-modality approach to treating testis cancer has led to 5-year survival rates exceeding 90%. At Wake Forest Baptist, the diagnosis of a testis tumor can be made during a single clinic visit, leading to prompt surgery so that appropriate follow-up treatment decisions can be made quickly.
Wake Forest Baptist takes a team approach to care with surgeons, medical oncologists, interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists working together to determine the best options for each patient.
