  • On the right path?

    I was diagnosed with TC early last week after having an ultrasound showing a solid cancerous mass. The urologist was an awesome guy and got me in for surgery to remove my left testicle right away. I've had blood tests, xrays and ct scan all done too. Now i am just waiting on the results... is this the correct path or order to do things? just wondering... thanks

    What he is doing is the right thing once your path report comes back they will talk to you about it and your other test results and your options. Most people will also see the ONC and they will go over your none surgical options like chemo or RT. Right now your are in the holding pattern until the results come back. Keep reading the old post they will help you a lot and if you have any questions let us know.
    Keep us posted and good luck.

      Yes the doctor's are doing everything they should. For now you're just stuck in a holding pattern until the test results come back. What you might want to do is have your doctor give you the name of the local sperm bank so that if you should need treatment you will have that base covered.
