  • Coronavirus and COVID-19

    If you are looking for information on treatment of testicular cancer during the current coronavirus pandemic and COVID-19, we've created a short living page on our website.

    We've included a few links to information that may be advantageous to your physician as well, if they are not a high volume testicular cancer expert.

    SP has done a lot of work on his blog as well, that can be viewed via the topic:

        The recommendations were from the panel of concerned international experts. I believe they are saying that if you have a scheduled follow up appointment (i.e. for imaging or blood work) and you have symptoms of coronavirus, that waiting a week or two to get better is not an issue. Individuals and their physicians may choose different time frames.
