Purpose/Objective(s): Although overall survival for early stage testicular seminoma is generally excellent, certain pathologic factors can increase recurrence risk for those undergoing observation, while radiation therapy (RT) can be associated with long-term morbidity. We sought to identify disease-related and treatment-related factors that influenced the outcomes, with particular emphasis on recurrence risk, patterns and timing of recurrence, as well as RT-induced malignancy.
