Delayed presentation of testicular tumors

, : Delayed presentation of testicular tumors. Southern Medical Journal 73(1): 33-35

Germ cell testicular tumors constitute a highly lethal group of neoplasms. Although recent diagnostic and therapeutic developments have altered the prognosis in this disease, delay in diagnosis and occasional mismanagement of patients continue to inhibit further improvement in survival. A ten-year retrospective study of germ cell tumors of the testis at West Virginia University Medical Center confirms confirms the need for patient education and physician awareness of the potential seriousness of all testicular masses. A high index of suspicion and an aggressive approach to management are advocated to improve long-term survival.

OBJECTIVE: The prophylactic use of nimodipine in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage reduces the risk of ischemic brain damage. However, its efficacy seems to be rather moderate. The question arises whether other types of calcium anta...
