BACKGROUND Testicular dysgenesis syndrome (TDS) is a common disease that links testicular germ cell cancer, cryptorchidism and some cases of hypospadias and male infertility with impaired development of the testis. The incidence of these disorders has increased over the last few decades, and testicular cancer now affects 1% of the Danish and Norwegian male(More)

In the Western world, testicular germ cell cancer (TGCC) is the most common malignancy of young men. The malignant transformation of germ cells is thought to be caused by developmental and hormonal disturbances, probably related to environmental and lifestyle factors because of rapidly increasing incidence of TGCC in some countries. Additionally, there is a(More)
We report 3 cases of patients with testicular cancer and stage II seminoma who developed neurological symptoms with bilateral leg weakness about 4 to 9 months after radiation therapy (RT). They all received RT to the para-aortic lymph nodes with a total dose of 40 Gy (36 Gy + 4 Gy as a boost against the tumour bed) with a conventional fractionation of 2(More)
A prognostic model for relapse risk in stage I seminoma managed by surveillance after orchiectomy has been developed but has not been independently validated. Individual data on 685 stage I seminoma surveillance patients managed between 1998 and 2005 at three cancer centers were retrospectively analyzed. Variables including age and pathology of the primary(More)
Cancers of unknown primary (CUPs) constitute ~5% of all cancers. The tumors have an aggressive biological and clinical behavior. The aim of the present study has been to uncover whether CUPs exhibit distinct molecular features compared to metastases of known origin. Employing genome wide transcriptome analysis, Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA) and(More)
MOTIVATION Contamination of a cancer tissue by the surrounding benign (non-cancerous) tissue is a concern for molecular cancer diagnostics. This is because an observed molecular signature will be distorted by the surrounding benign tissue, possibly leading to an incorrect diagnosis. One example is molecular identification of the primary tumor site of(More)
In 2013 testicular cancer (TC) represents the most curable solid tumour. The high cure rate is associated with a significant long-term morbidity. Long-term effects after TC treatment can be divided into life-threatening (e.g. secondary tumours and cardiovascular disease) or effects on single organs (e.g. nephro-, neuro-and pulmonary toxicity, hypogo-nadism(More)

A case of persistent B-cell lymphocytopenia in a 40-year-old woman with lymphoid-epithelial thymoma treated with chemotherapy, surgery and irradiation is described. The possible diagnosis of Good's syndrome (hypogammaglobulinaemia and thymoma) is discussed. Thymomas represent a rare neoplasm of the mediastinum. The incidence is 0.15 cases per 100,000 in the(More)
