Brother (23 when diagnosed) : Dianosed 14/09/2009, testicle removed, Non sem diagnosed. Tumour markers 36000 before op and dropped to 17000 after operation.. Chemo started end of september 4 x BEP. Tumour markers normal at end of chemo. RPLND 26 Feb 2010 No cancer found.
Latest Appointment May 2013- CT and markers normal
Congrats! Great news.
Re the cyst - yes, common and not worrisome, but given anything post a cancer diagnosis it is normal to worry. As for your local doc whose response is 'I am a doctor and have been doing this a long time' - he needs an ego check and you deserve a better response. Trust your sister.
