Radiation therapy for testicular cancer
Radiation treatment for testicular cancer requires accuracy and precision.
With advanced radiation therapy delivery systems, our radiation oncologists are better able to target difficult-to-reach lymph nodes in the abdomen or pelvis that may contain testicular cancer tumor cells. Also, our radiation oncologists can direct higher radiation doses at testicular cancer cells, while reducing exposure to normal, healthy tissue, such as to the bowel or kidneys.
When radiation therapy is used in the treatment of testicular cancer, special precautions are taken to shield the remaining testicle and preserve fertility.
