    Sorry for the wait, but because of AFP, yes. The standard here is to treat until markers are down to normal, and then 2 rounds.
    10/2015: Mild pain in right testicle, ultrasound revealed mass of ca. 3 cm. AFP 37,6 kU/l (normal less than 5,8 kU/l), hCG negative (less than 5 U/l). 11/2015: Radical orchiectomy, PAD revealed 100 % embryonal carcinoma (pT2). Post-operatively AFP 234 kU/l, hCG 33 U/l. CT-scan revealed two enlargened retroperitoneal lymph nodes, so classified as Stage II. 12/2015-2/2016: 4 x BEP; hCG back to negative, AFP still 6,6 kU/l. Lymph nodes back to normal size. 3/2016-4/2016: 3 x PEI/VIP; AFP down to normal. 5/2016-: Under surveillance.
