    Do all cancers in the testicals result to having the testicals removed?

    Just want to no.

    Almost always, yes. Much better to live without a testicle than to live with cancer in your body.

      Keeping a testicle with cancer would be very rare indeed. The only good way to examine a testicle with a solid mass is to remove it.
      Son Jason diagnosed 4/30/04, stage III. Right I/O 4/30/04. Graduated College 5/13/04. 4XEP 6/7/04 - 8/13/04. Full open RPLND 10/13/04. All Clear since.

      Treated by Dr. Rakowski of Midland Park, NJ. Visited Sloan Kettering for protocol advice. RPLND done at Sloan Kettering.
