  • 10+ years monitoring - they said you are cured

    Hi...well after 10+ years of being monitored for my 2007 seminoma, my onco doc said I am cured...I am no longer being monitored...out of the program. A big thank you to Dr Warde and Dr Chung at Toronto's Princess Margaret hospital for taking such good care of me all these years!!.

            The orchidectomy was in Aug 2007 with a relapse in 2009 (1 cm node in paraordic region) which resulted in 20 days of radiation....during the years of monitoring after that I was not aware of any enlarged nodes.
