Testicular Cancer

Definition

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.

The Department of Urology is the point of entry for patients with testicular cancer. For convenience and ease of access, Urology  has easy parking and is located just minutes from Business 40. The facility offers endoscopic procedures, CT scans, ultrasound and lab studies all in one location.

Our surgeons perform nerve-sparing surgery when feasible to reduce incidence of retrograde ejaculation.
