Seminoma is a type of testicular cancer, I had BEP chemo (3 21 day cycles) for it when initially diagnosed and an orchiechtomy (removal of testicle), then I was rediagnosed a year later and had TIP chemo for 4 cycles.  Not fun at all, but better now.

2011, my son was diagnoised with testicular cancer.  Doctor's in Detroit said he had a 35% chance of survival.  We went to IU in Indy where Dr. Einhern is.  That is the doc that treated Lance Armstrong.  My son's case was far worse than his.  3 yrs. of surgeries, chemo's and 2 stem cell transplant and chemo pill and my son is alive.  Feeling wonderful.  It was a hard road filled with fear but he made it.  IU is part of Clarion Health.  Men come from all over the world for treatment by this doctor and his teams.  He will even work with you initially and then work with your onocology team close to you.  He is a wonderful man. 

To get in faster, you have your doc call for an appointment. 


Annie on another board.  This pic I have shows my son with me here.  I call him my miracle child.

Yes, it is a type of testicular cancer. It depends on your doctor, but it is usually treated through chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
