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).
