After surgery, your doctor may suggest:
- Radiation: high-energy beams that kill cancer cells
- Chemotherapy: strong drugs that kill cancer cells
For seminomas, doctors may use radiation or chemotherapy. For non-seminomas, they tend to use chemotherapy. Both may cause infertility -- you might not be able to father a child after these treatments. If you want children someday, talk to your doctor about sperm banking before your treatment.
