  • I went through with the orchiectomy today. My tumor markers were up (AFP was 3 points above my normal) and there were actually four masses in the latest US that Memorial Sloan did. The surgery went smoothly. They gave me a testosterone shot to last me four weeks. I'll be meeting with Sheinfeld next...

  • Another (welcome) twist in this story. The MRI radiologist came back saying that it did not look like a tumor, rather some sort of vascular issue.

It doesn't feel like a tumor, and if there was a 12...

  • Thanks for the replies, Joe and Mike. I'm certainly hoping it's a mistake/misunderstanding. Unfortunately, it didn't seem there was any way to get around going home.

    Potential Round Two

    Hello, I'm new to posting on this forum, although I found it very helpful eight years ago when I had TC for the first time (left, 100% embryonal, 3xBEP + RPLND). Right now, I'm in a bit of an odd situation. Two months ago I had an ultrasound because I found a small cyst-like mass on the epididymis....
