Hi there, I am from the coloc cancer site....going throught my chemo regimen and appreciating all of the great people on my site.

Well, last night , I received the unfortunate news that my young cousin (25) has testicular cancer. One removed and then found tumors of a more aggessive type in the other. CTscans and Lung X-rays today.....

Just thought I would post here...as I am so ignarant abou the condition.

Is testicular cancer a particularily fast spreading cancer? Have the chemo and radiation regimens been pretty successful?

Just new to another cancer.....spend most of my time thinking about my own!

I 'd apprecaite any info.. and I have passed a long the site. I hope he - or a family member joins?

Thanks.
Cheers,
Maura
