  • Tumor Question

    If I have a heterogenous tumor(2 types of mass) with normal blood markers and blood count, but stage 2-3 of TC, does that mean it is defenetly pure seminoma?
    Aged 23 ;; 09/06 left I/O ;; Markers normal ;; 100% Seminoma Stage 1. ;; 10x8x16mm & 7x7x8mm ;; rete testis invasion. ;; no vascular invasion. ;; surveillance. ;; HRT.

    You can't know for sure what cancer cell types are present until you have the pathology report following your orchiectomy.
