    Hi .. my son 8 months ago was diagnosed with testicular cancer .. Tumor type mix germ cell .. there was only 2.5 cm lymph node in the abdominal lymph .. stage 2 b. rplnd surgery pathology matur teratoma .. Do you have ideas about the recurrence rate?

    Sorry, but did he have both 3XBEP *AND* RPLND? If so and there was only teratoma found than the recurrence rate is very low. It can happen, but isn't common.
    Jan, 1975: Right I/O, followed by RPLND
    Dec, 2009: Left I/O, followed by 3xBEP
