Hi and welcome to HCM.
Fortunately, testicular cance is one that show rapid regression on radiotherapy and results/prognosis is very good especailly in stage 1. lypmh nodes may be malignant,but in most cases these are just reactively or inflamamtory swollen lymph nodes and there is no danger of metastasis. Also abdominal l.nodes are found enlarged in any other infection,abdomnal or urinary. I am sure that you will recover fast and everything s fine. WIsh you good health.

Welcome to healthcaremagic;
Please confirm your diagnosis because stage I disease does not have lymph node in abdomen. Germ cell tumor are very curable cancer because it is very responsive to cisplatin-based chemotherapy.
If you have lymph node you will be receiving BEP or EP based chemotherapy.
Your markers may be normal because markers are usually normal in seminomatous testicular tumor
