It can be risen by a lot of things as it's to do with cell degeneration and repair etc. Also test ranges vary hugely from country to country, if not hospitals.
    Thank you for that clarification. I only ever heard about it on this forum.

      Got back from the biopsy and now we wait.

      From the CT report:
      There has been interval development of a left periaortic lymph node measuring 1.0 X 1.3 cm

      There is also interval enlargement of a right common iliac lymph node. Which measures 1.4x1.5 cm previously 0.7x0.8

      Does this sound like a normal progression for tc?

          Sorry to hear about your relapse. Were they able to identify from the biopsy that it was seminoma? I have been weary of pathology reports with testicular cancer because it's rare and I don't think they see it often.
          April 2017 - Scheduled physical with DR for testicular pain / ultrasound scheduled
          May 2017 - US shows 3 solid masses 1.2 x 0.7 x 0.7 cm/0.8 x 0.5 x 0.8 cm/ 0.4 x 0.3 x 0.4 cm
          June 2017 - Left inguinal exploration and left radical orchiectomy. Pathology - Seminoma, classic type and intratubular germ no neoplasia - seminomatous. CT scan shows 2 long nodules (most likely granulomas) and Borderline prominent but non specific mesenteric nodes within the right lower quadrant.
          July 2017 - 2nd CT scan all clear! Lung nodules stable. Active surveillance 5 years.

            Yes. The biopsy came back that it is seminoma,
