              Congrats Jesse!
              11/16/16 Went to primary care complaining of testicular pain. Wrongly diagnosed with epididymitis. Told not to worry, it'll go away on its own.
              12/8/16 Diagnosed with TC in left testicle.
              12/9/16 Left I/O.
              1/5/17 Tumor Markers officially back to normal -- Stage 1A with 70% EC.
              1/26/17 Robotic RPLND using left MSKCC template as primary treatment.
              2/2/17 Pathology results: pN0. No current evidence of cancer. They say I still have a 10% relapse chance.

                  My second was caught early (as was my first). Other than surgery and regular tests - there was no treatment for the second occurrence. I had radiation treatment back in the day for first one (nuked lymphnodes) and was told that was preventive to the second one spreading. However I believe and was told that the radiation therapy increased my odds later in life of other cancers.
