Stages of testis cancer

Staging of testis cancer.

Staging, usually in the form of blood tests and CT scans of the body, is used to identify if there is cancer beyond the testicle. Stage I testicular cancer is defined as cancer that is limited to the testis only. Stage II testicular cancer has spread (metastasized) to the abdominal lymph nodes.  Stage III testicular cancer has spread to other organs


For testicular cancer a prognostic classification system has been developed to identify good, intermediate and poor prognosis patients.  This is largely based on the extent of tumour seen, the levels of AFP marker expressed in the blood.  Men with stage I testicular cancers have an excellent prognosis.
