Testicular cancer stages

Making an educated treatment decision begins with the stage, or progression, of the disease. The stage of testicular cancer is one of the most important factors in evaluating treatment options.

Our cancer doctors use a variety of diagnostic tests to evaluate testicular cancer and develop an individualized treatment plan. If you have been recently diagnosed, we will review your pathology to confirm you have received the correct diagnosis and staging information, and develop a personalized treatment plan. If you have a recurrence, we will perform comprehensive testing and identify a treatment approach that is suited to your needs.

Stage II testicular cancer

Testicular cancers at this stage have invaded tissues next to the testicle, and can now be found in at least one nearby lymph node. Tumor marker levels may be normal or slightly elevated.

Stage II testicular cancer has three subcategories:

  • Stage IIA: Tumors at this stage have spread to one or more lymph nodes, but no node is larger than 2 cm.
  • Stage IIB: Tumors at this stage have spread to at least one lymph node, which is between 2 cm and 5 cm in size.
  • Stage IIC: These tumors have spread to at least one lymph node that is larger than 5 cm.
