In brief: Small groin incision

Incision is made in the groin to secure blood supply from testicle before testicle is pulled up in to groin & out of the incision, to prevent spread.
You will lose the affected testicle, which can be replaced with a prosthesis, if this is important to you. Post-operative pain should not be severe. Further treatment by radical lymph node dissection depends upon cancer type &/or nodal involvement.
