dad just diagnosed with this and I had Left testicle, Mixed germ cell tumor
(spindle cell embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma of germ cell tumor derivation - 60%; teratoma - 20%; embryonal carcinoma and yolk sac tumor - 20%; seminoma - less than 1 %),

2 1/2 years ago

How much will this increase my chances for prostate cancer. I can help my dad deal with this the best I can. I am still monitored for this currently every 6 months,(blood work catscan doc visit), next one in aug and I just went to 6 months from 3 months. Should I call my doc immedietly or wait to inform him of this change.

There is a wealth of info on this on here so I am sure most of my questions about his situation can be answered that way. This is mainly for my situation.

Thanks

Sorry to hear your dad had to join us, but it is a good place to be. My Dr had told me that odds go from 1 in 6, to 1 in 2. An increase to 50%, had a member of my family already had this disease.

Thanks Jim
Yeah I had heard those numbers as well. The one thing I never found out was if the cancer I had raises my chances even further.
