    If it's stage IIB, then the appropriate treatment is very likely going to be chemotherapy, a well-proven cure for testicular cancer.
    right inguinal orchiectomy 6/5/2003 > nonseminoma, stage I > surveillance > L-RPLND 6/24/2005 for recurrence, suspected teratoma but found seminoma, stage II > chylous ascites until 9/2005 > surveillance and "all clear" since

      Thank you all for all of the responses. I found out that my nephews mom didn't get the path report but she will get a copy on wednesday when they go the the oncol doc. She did tell me tonight that it was his AFP that was 88. I went to visit him tonight and he is doing well and trying to walk. I felt so bad for him. The way he walked tonight I can't imagine what it was like right after surgery. That all I know for now. Going to do some more research.

        This is the part of the path report that my Nephews mom emailed me. What does it mean? Anyone know?

        A. Rt. testicle
        "Immature teratoma with foci suggestive of seminoma and embryonal carcinoma. Tumor involves the epididymis. The external testicular capsule is free of tumor invasion. Line of resection of spermatic cord is free of the tumor. Tumor focally involves the epididymis.
        B. Proximal portion of cord, Rt.
        "Fragments of spermatic cord. No pathological diagnosis. No tumor seen."
