Chemotherapy before radiotherapy for testicular cancer could reduce risk of relapse and long-term side-effects

Giving men with testicular cancer a single dose of chemotherapy alongside radiotherapy could improve the effectiveness of treatment and reduce the risk of long-term side-effects, a new study reports.
As many as 96% of men with testicular cancer now survive at least ten years from diagnosis, but more advanced forms need to be treated with combination chemotherapy – which can have serious long-term complications.
