Here a few highlight: I am sure your oncologist will educate you before giving you chemo. In general, chemo for testicular cancer is associated with considerable side effects like nausea/vomiting and low blood counts which can make you feel weak(due to anemia) and also at some risk for infections. But the treatment course is shorter than any other cancer. So it is 3 months of inconvenience but a likely high cure proba.
