    Since you did not say, I have to assume he had a CT scan that did not find any spread? If so, he is stage one, and 2xBEP would be more than needed. 1xBEP is the standard of care these days for stage one TC. If they found spread (stage two) than 3xBEP would be preferred. I am assuming he had non-seminoma, you did not say, but they would not do BEP for stage one seminoma, as a rule.
