Even for the relatively few cases in which malignant cancer has spread widely, modern chemotherapy offers a cure rate of at least 80%.
US incidence Testicular cancer is relatively uncommon, with approximately 5500 new cases per year in the United States. The peak incidence is in men aged 20-34 years. Testicular cancer is the most common solid tumor in this otherwise young, healthy, and productive age group. Furthermore, despite improvements in survival rates since the introduction of platinum-based chemotherapy in the United States in the 1970s and 1980s, from 1975-2001, the incidence of testicular cancer among white males in the United States rose by 46%. Currently, the incidence is approximately 5.44 cases per 100,000 persons.
