The lung masses are to be evaluated in light of the kind of testicular cancer- seminoma, terato Ca etc. Cancer metastasis sometimes do not follow the expected pattern Also if found i to be part of testis cancer they can be treated. Between your Urologist and Oncologist they will find a treatment. Good luck
