In brief: Depends

There are different types of testicular cancer (seminoma being the most curable.
) depending on the type of testicular cancer and the stage of the cancer the recurrence rates after treatment will vary. The treatments themselves vary based on these factors, as well. Learn more about this here: http://www.Cancer.Net/cancer-types/testicular-cancer/treatment.
