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.
