AUA Releases New Clinical Guideline for Diagnosis and Treatment of Testicular Cancer

LINTHICUM, Md., May 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the American Urological Association (AUA), a leading global urology association, released a new clinical guideline on the diagnosis and treatment of early stage testicular cancer.

Testicular cancer is the most common cancer among men ages 20 to 40. Although it is a less common form of cancer, about 9,600 men in the US will be told this year they have the disease. Men who were born with cryptorchidism (undescended testicle) have a greater chance of being diagnosed with testicular cancer, as are men with a family history or men with a personal history of testis cancer. The good news is testicular cancer is also one of the most treatable cancers. Self-examination of the testes is important for early detection. When caught early, the cure rate is close to 100 percent.
