A case-control study of 271 testicular cancer cases aged 18-42, including 60 seminomas and 206 other germinal cell tumours, and 259 controls was carried out to study the association between occupation and testicular cancer risk. Study subjects were identified at three medical centres, two of which treat military personnel. Controls were men diagnosed with a(More)
An immunohistologic study of 21 patients with germ cell tumors of the testis with measured serum levels of chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) and alpha-feto protein (AFP) was undertaken to correlate the various types of neoplasms with the presence of these tumor markers in the tissue and serum. AFP was demonstrated in mononuclear embryonal cells within embryonal(More)
In a prospective study of 80 patients with germinal testicular cancer, serial determinations of lactic dehydrogenase (LDH), alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) and human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) were followed for a mean of 18.1 months. Serum LDH was found to be elevated more frequently with increasing tumor bulk. LDH was elevated in 78.0% of the patients with(More)
In a case-control study of testicular cancer, 6 of 269 cases (2.2%) reported a first-degree relative with testicular cancer, compared to 1 of 259 controls (0.4%). Fathers and brothers of testicular cancer cases had a six-fold elevated risk of developing a testicular malignancy compared to men in the general population. Cryptorchidism was reported in a(More)
