  • Unsure what to make of pathology report

    I'm supposed to be seeing my urologist on march 6, but until then I don't know what to make of my pathology report. I just went to a walk-in clinic to get it printed. The GP there didn't know what to make of it either.

    -pure seminoma
    -tumor size: greatest dimension 4.2 cm
    -vascular invasion: not identified
    -Invasion beyond tunica albuginea: identified, hilar paratesticular tissue
    -Rete testis invasion: identified
    -epididymis invasion: identified
    -spermatic cord invasion: not identified
    -surgical margins: free of tumor
    -germ cell neoplasia in situ: identified
    -necrosis: not identified
    -non-neoplastic testis shows: atrophy/fibrosis
    -pTNM stage: pT2 pNX

    Should also mention the CT scan, X ray and bloodwork all came back normal

    Not a physican, but looks like stage 1 Seminoma. No spread.

      The tumor didn't travel through the spermattic cord, and your lymph nodes are normal. Im sure they will just reccomend surveillance, so CT scans, chest x-rays and blood work. That's about the best scenario u could have hoped for.
