Abstract

Although testicular cancer is highly curable, with 5-year testicular cancer-specific survival rates exceeding 95 %, AYA males have the lowest survival rate, correlated with a higher incidence of distant metastases at diagnosis. Hispanics are undergoing a dramatic increase in testicular cancer, the cause of which has not been ascertained. Testicular cancer among AYAs has unique biology, clinical features, and psychosocial impacts that distinguish its care from that of the general oncologic population.
