Most testis tumors are diagnosed in early stages. Following orchiectomy excellent cure rates are achieved. In metastatic disease a multidisciplinary therapeutic approach is required and offers acceptable survival rates. The European Urological Association (EUA) recommends a follow-up up to 10 years for patient with nonmetastatic testicular tumors (state I).
