After testicular cancer treatment
What follow-up do I need?
You will need to go back to hospital for regular check-ups once treatment is over. This is called follow-up.
The follow-up may involve physical exams, blood tests, X-rays and CT scans. It’s also a chance for you to ask any questions and to let the doctor know if you have any side-effects that are bothering you or if you are finding it hard to cope.
If you are between check-ups and have a symptom or problem that is worrying you, contact your doctor or specialist nurse for advice or to make an appointment, if necessary.
Healthy lifestyle changes

It’s a good idea to check your testicles regularly, as there is a slightly higher risk of getting cancer in the other testicle after you’ve had testicular cancer. See how to check your testicles.
What if the cancer comes back (recurrence)?
If the cancer comes back you can still have treatment. Your doctor will discuss your treatment options with you, or you can read more information on treatment for recurrent testicular cancer.
