Stage I seminoma: Treatment outcomes at King Hussein Cancer Center in Jordan
BMC Urology, 04/25/2012Khader J et al.
The authors' results confirm the excellent prognosis for patients with early–stage seminoma treated by orchiectomy and adjuvant radiotherapy in a developing country. Although all patients who developed relapse demonstrated adverse pathological findings upon initial assessment, no consistent predictor of relapse was found. Scrotal scar re–excision or irradiation in patients with prior history of surgical violation of the scrotum are effective in preventing local failure.
