Radiotherapy more effective than chemotherapy for early stage II testicular cancer
A large study of testicular cancer patients has shown that radiation therapy is a better treatment than chemotherapy for patients with stage IIa disease (where one or more regional lymph nodes contain cancer cells but they are less than 2 cm in diameter). These findings are important because, until now, there has been little evidence about which treatment for testicular seminoma is more effective. (Source: ScienceDaily Headlines)

These findings, presented at the ESTRO 35 conference and published simultaneously in Clinical Oncology, are important because, until now, there has been little evidence about which treatment for testicular seminoma is more effective.

Early Stage Testicular Cancer - Surveillance Is Best Follow-Up Strategy
A long-term study of men with stage I seminoma, a common form of testicular cancer, suggests that surveillance for cancer recurrence, rather than additional chemotherapy or radiation therapy, is sufficient for the vast majority of patients who have undergone successful surgery for their cancer. In a new long-term study conducted in Denmark, researchers analyzed a national clinical database and found that 99.6% of patients who only underwent surveillance (following a successful surgery) were alive after 10 years of being diagnosed with testicular cancer...
