How successful is testicular cancer treatment?

ANSWER

The success of testicular cancer treatment depends on the stage of the disease when it's first detected and treated. If the cancer is found and treated before it spreads to the lymph nodes, the cure rate is very high, greater than 98%. Even after testicular cancer has spread to the lymph nodes, treatment is highly effective, with a cure rate greater than 90%.
