Sign | Management of testicular germ cell tumours

10th May 2011 by Louise Hudman

Most of this is not new for us, or is for secondary care. Worthwhile noting is:

  • 2 week wait refer if epididymo-orchitis/orchitis is suspected but is not resolving in 2 to 3 weeks.
  • Patients have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, because of chemo and radiotherapy, so ensure that they are given appropriate lifestyle advice. The exact risk may be up to about 2.5x background levels if treated with chemo and radiotherapy.
  • Patients are also at increased risk of non-germ cell tumours (2 to 3 times).

"I started working as a locum GP in January this year and NASGP have been invaluable in helping to co-ordinate my bookings and organise all the administrative aspects of sessional work which can be complex and time consuming. Their client support is outstanding and they have always resolved any queries promptly and personally. They care about the service they provide and I would not hesitate to recommend them to any sessional GPs who want to minimise time spent on administration and focus on providing patients with high quality care."
