    My name is Zack. I'm 31. I was diagnosed with testicular cancer a week and two days ago. I had my inguinal orchiectomy three weeks and two days ago, and I first noticed something was wrong 38 days ago. It has been a roller coaster and I am not sure how to feel, or even what I am feeling right now. I am here to find answers to the questions that I have that aren't talked about in the research and get an idea of my next steps.

    I was diagnosed with non-seminoma. I'm not sure what the majority of the mass was as I got caught off-guard when he said "about 5% teratoma, and 1% or less of yolk sac tumor."

    Welcome Zack. Have you had a CT scan or blood marker draw yet?

      Hello Zack, sorry to welcome here. Didn't you get pathology report, as it is obvious it has been done and your doc got results?
