  • Any papers on seminoma growth rate? (not sure if this is the right forum)

    Apologies if this is the wrong forum. I tried searching for papers on the growth rate of seminoma, and couldn't find anything. I know the other types tend to double in 10-30 days.

    I've had small lesions in my left testicle for almost three years. They've grown enough that my urologist wants to do a biopsy, that will be happening soon. Could be benign, but assuming its cancer it's almost certainly seminoma, based on what I've read.

    I basically want to know if three years is a typical time to have seminoma visible on ultrasound without it turning into anything past stage I. There's no evidence of metastasis at present.

    Research, or anyone's anecdotal personal experience with slow growing seminoma would be welcome.
