EBRT for testicular cancer

EBRT for testicular cancer

Specific advantages of EBRT for testicular cancer include the following:

  • EBRT is an outpatient procedure. It is the standard-of-care treatment for delivering radiation to lymph nodes in the abdomen or pelvis that may be hiding testicular cancer cells. This technique does not carry the typical risks or complications associated with major surgery, which can include surgical bleeding, post-operative pain or the risk of stroke, heart attack or blood clot.
  • The procedure itself is painless.
  • EBRT poses no risk of radioactivity to you or others with whom you have contact. As you undergo EBRT, you may continue normal activities with family and friends.
