Spermatocytic seminoma

The incidence of testicular cancer tends to affect mainly men between the ages of 15 and 40. The mortality rate of this cancer is decreasing, but it is true that cancer treatments jeopardize male reproductive health.

Most testicular tumors occur in the cells where sperm are produced. This would explain the possible damage to male fertility.

In 40% of the cases, the type of testicular cancer is usually a seminoma. These tumors grow slowly and it is unusual for them to spread elsewhere in the body. In addition, it is necessary to differentiate between classic seminoma and spermatocytic seminoma. The latter subtype of tumor is usually more frequent in older men, whereas classic seminoma arises in young men.
