How We Can Help
Testicular Cancer Treatment Information
IU Health offers a wide range of treatment options. Our multidisciplinary approach provides well-rounded and highly effective treatment. Our specialists collaborate to treat even advanced testicular cancer that has metastasized (spread) to other organs of the body. Your particular cancer and your preferences are an important part of our treatment decisions. We also provide social workers and counselors who can help you with emotional aspects of cancer.
Removing the affected testicle is usually an essential part of treatment. If we catch the cancer at an early stage, this may be the only treatment necessary. If we decide there is no need for further treatment, careful monitoring will help us catch any cancer that was not visible earlier.
If not caught early enough, testicular cancer can metastasize upward into lymph nodes in the abdomen. Further metastasis often appears in the lungs and requires more aggressive treatment.
Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are essential treatment options for testicular cancer.
In treating testicular cancer we speak of cure rates, not just survival rates. Treatment has become so effective that it’s common for a man to have no recurrence and live a completely normal life.
Lifesaving treatments developed over the last 50 years have made testicular cancer one of the most survivable cancers. Researchers and physicians at IU Health are among those who developed innovative treatments for this cancer. We gained an international reputation for our work, and we remain on the leading edge of treatment for testicular cancer.
