Testicular cancer (TC) represents between 1% and 1.5% of male neoplasms and 5% of urological tumors. The vast majority of tumors are diagnosed in young men between 15 and 40 years old. There are two types of TC: seminoma (SGCT), that affects mainly males between 30 and 35 years old, and nonseminoma, (SSGCT) that affects males between 25 and 29 years and is more aggressive. There is also the spermatocytic seminoma, a rare variant of seminoma (0.61% of all germ cell tumors) that affects men older… 
Current management of stage I testicular germ cell tumors in a French cancer institute. A practice analysis over the 10 past years.
TLDR
The analysis of clinical practice during the last 10 years showed that in SGCT, main treatment was RT than SV and CT, and RT was less used over the years for the benefit of SV which is recommended by guidelines.
Sexual Dysfunction and Reproductive Concerns in Young Men Diagnosed With Testicular Cancer: An Observational Study.
TLDR
The results show that the majority of young men diagnosed with testicular cancer do not report sexual dysfunction or reproductive concerns 2 years after diagnosis, and a sizeable minority, however, does report dysfunction and reproductive concerns, which should be recognized in the follow-up care of this population.
Neuroanatomical and molecular correlates of cognitive and behavioural outcomes in hypogonadal males
TLDR
The present review is an overview of some roles of the sex steroids on cognitive function in males, and the neuroanatomical and molecular underpinnings of some behavioural and cognitive deficits characteristic of such genetic disorders noted for low androgen levels, including Klinefelter syndrome, Bardet-Biedl syndrome, Kallman syndrome and Prader-Willi syndrome.

UNCOMMON TUMORS OF THE TESTIS
Testicular cancer represents between 1% and 1.5% of male neoplasms and 5% of urological tumours. The vast majority of tumours are diagnosed in the third and fourth decade of life. The histological
The impact of orchidectomy upon the sexuality of the man with testicular cancer.
TLDR
There was a perceived reduction in sexual activity postoperatively for the germ cell tumour group, and there were significant differences between retrospective scores for sexual intercourse, masturbation and sexual drive and the postoperative scores.
Long-term effects on sexual function and fertility after treatment of testicular cancer
TLDR
Sexual dysfunction and infertility are common long-lasting sequelae in testicular cancer survivors affecting approximately 20% of patients, and the relative risk for infertility appeared to be elevated for patients treated with the combination of CT+SRRTM.

TLDR
There was a significant difference between the radiotherapy patients and the controls in almost all the parameters looked at including erection, ejaculation and libido with the treated group performing less well.
Testicular and testicular adnexa tumors in the elderly
TLDR
The testis and paratesticular region neoplasm more commonly diagnosed in elderly men is discussed.
Paternity following treatment for testicular cancer.
TLDR
Although the overall paternity rate after treatment for testicular cancer was high, the ability to conceive and the time to conception reflected the intensity of treatment, and data may help inform patients about their future ability to father biological children.
Quality of life among testis cancer survivors.
TLDR
Exercise interventions have been shown to improve fatigue and overall QOL in cancer survivors, and there is evidence that psychosocial and mind-body interventions may also be beneficial.
Gynaecomastia: an endocrine manifestation of testicular cancer
TLDR
Evaluating the association between gynaecomastia and testicular cancer and recommending appropriate management for patients presenting with gynaEComasti is recommended.
Fertility in men with testicular germ cell tumors.
TLDR
Although the majority of the patients with testicular cancer have a fulfilled wish with regard to children, it seems to be more difficult to father a child after treatment compared with the case in the general population.
Curative testis cancer therapy: psychosocial sequelae.
TLDR
Data suggest that there are delayed effects of advanced testis cancer and its curative therapies on emotional states and outlook on life, employment, intimate relationships, and sexual function, and that the subgroup of men, who are least likely to disclose these problems to physicians, are at greater risk for the deleterious outcomes.
