    A new version! I referred to the previous edition frequently, but this one was published 10/24/2005. Thanks for posting it, Brian.
    Highlights of major changes in the 2006 version of the Testicular Cancer guidelines from the 2005 version include:
    • For Stage I seminoma the RT dosage was changed to 20-30 Gy.
    • Adjuvant RT to ipsilateral ileoinguinal nodes was added as a consderation for patients with metastatic lymph node risk factors.
    • For Stage II seminoma, progressive disease was moved to an option after CT scan rather than after determination that PET scan is not feasible.

    Treatment Direction

    For those newly diagnosed with questions about the direction your treatment might be heading, soemone gave me this link. Though treatment plans vary, mine followed these guidelines (NCCN). I took this in for my appointments and asked my physician to help fill in the blanks. See attached for what it's worth.
