Whoa!: how did you get the diagnosis of testicular cancer? It cannot be made except by biopsy. If anyone has told you otherwise, you are being scammed. Whoever did your biopsy is prepared to refer you for surgery

Here are some...: The initial step for managing a confirmed testicular tumor includes a detailed history, physical exam, and timely blood tests and imaging studies, and afterward perform radical orchiectomy through inguinal incision for exploration, treatment, and diagnosis. After these, do more tests and studies so to decide what may be reasonable step for you. All these things could be done in urologists.

I agree with Dr. Thom. Don't forget to ask your urologist about intermittent hormonal therapy. Often men can get all the benefit while having periods without the side-effects and cost.
