My son was diagnosed with metastatic testicular cancer. He had the cancerous testicle removed. It had spread to the lymph nodes. He did a heavy cycle of chemo therapy. After the cycles had ended, he went through the standard post chemo testing and follow up with oncologist. One of the lymph nodes didn t shrink down, so the oncologist presented his case to the oncology bi-weekly case review meeting. The consensus was either surgery or another round of chemo. My son has opted for the surgery. My understanding is that this is considered a major surgery. I am trying to find more information on the surgery itself and some information on recovery time, needs, etc... Do you know where I can find some general information for my questions?

Hello, For the last 5 and 1/2 months, I have been getting sore and burning sensations in my throat after various kinds of excersise. The more intense the excersise, the sooner the pain arrives.. For example, I get it after 8-10 minutes on the thread mill, and after 1 and 1/2 miles of biking... It this GERD (GER) or something else.....I am 55 years old and have a good medical history, except for having the same thing that Lance Armstrong had in 1986 (seminomae testicular cancer), got radiation treatments, and a clean bill of health.

for the last 5 months have had a dull pain in my right groin area. I do not see any physical change, either by sight or touch however I find that when I sit for a while the area tightens up when I start to walk but as I as walk for a short time then it loosens up. I did have testicular cancer 14 yrs ago so I did check my right testicle and it feels fine.
