Pathology results

I got a telephone call from my urologist this afternoon with the pathology report on the testicle removed during my orchiectomy. I will get a copy of the actual report later but basically the doctor said it was –

Seminoma only
No spread to the sperm tubes or other areas
Did have vascular invasion

So it could have been worse. This is in addition to my negative CT scan and negative blood markers.

I’m being referred to another doctor to discuss options for further treatment. The protocol in Northern Ireland seems to be give everyone preventative radiotherapy. I’ll discuss the option of surveillance with him.

So all things considered, happy days.
