Synopsis

First, the doctors discuss when orchiectomy and retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND) are necessary. They also summarize the relevant tumor markers and laboratory values to obtain and discuss the possibility of teratomas. Then, they examine the role of chemotherapy in the treatment of metastatic testicular cancer.

The doctors then transition to explaining how to manage patient expectations before orchiectomy and RPLND. They discuss the various complications of the procedure as well as the potential benefits of using 3D models and animations to explain the surgery to patients.
