    Hi Eric.

    All the best of luck.
    You will be fine!

    Many has postet percentages already, but as you can se in this paper, there is a more than 99% cure rate in cases like yours!
    "Nevertheless, the cure rate in CS I seminoma patients is almost 100% and can be achieved with three strategies: adjuvant radiation treatment,
    surveillance strategy with administration of irradiation or chemotherapy
    in case of relapse
    , or adjuvant chemotherapy with single-agent carboplatin."
    Elsewhere in the paper the "almost 100%" is spelled out as >99%.

    Still it's OK to freak out - just know that the statistics are so much with you on this.

    Best wishes

    Eric, of course, we wish you good luck and continued good health. We know what you are going through. My son will be having his CT scan tomorrow, one year past chemo. We are 99% confident that he will be fine, but we always worry about that 1%. Hang in there. Dianne

    Relapse after RT stage I seminoma ?? hmm...You are not the lucky one. Anyway, because you are not treated befeore with chemo, after 4xBEP you are almost 80->95% cured.

    All the best and post here the test results.
