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 III testicular cancer

Testicular cancers at this stage have spread to distant lymph nodes or organs.

Stage III testicular cancer has three subcategories:

  • Stage IIIA: These cancers have spread to a distant lymph node or the lungs. Tumor marker protein levels are normal or slightly elevated.
  • Stage IIIB: At this stage of testicular cancer, patients have moderately elevated levels of tumor marker proteins – and the disease has either spread to nearby or distant lymph nodes, or the lungs.
  • Stage IIIC: These cancers have high levels of tumor marker proteins, and may have spread to nearby or distant lymph nodes, or the lungs. Alternatively, they may have spread to other distant organs, such as the liver or the brain, but in this case serum tumor markers can be at any level.
