Slide 16: CHOICE OF DOSE In radical radiotherapy choice of dose & fractionation regimen depends on following factors: - Radio sensitivity of tumor - e.g. radiosensitive tumor such as seminoma can be controlled by total dose of 30Gy / 4wks While for moderately sensitive sq. cell ca. of head & neck higher doses of the order of 50-60Gy in 5-6wks is used.
These cells subsequently lose and rearrange their chromosomes to first generate a seminoma and then the more malignant and pluripotent EC cells, which stabilize at an approximately 3n DNA content
Imaging: Chest radiography not needed in seminoma surveillance
Over the last 20-40 years, reports in the literature indicate a decrease in the quality of sperm and an increase in the frequency of testicular malignancies (especially seminoma)  - .
The non-seminoma subtype represents tumors of mixed histology, including embryonal carcinoma, teratoma, and polyembryoma, choriocarcinoma, or yolk sac tumor
Especially in Britain, male patients are thankful for carboplatin's effects. 40 to 45 percent of men in England that have testicular cancer are plagued with seminoma.
Studies have found that carboplatin is a safer drug for the first stage testicular cancer, seminoma, than taking the process of radiotherapy.
Aberrant hypomethylation at this locus is one cause of Silver-Russell syndrome-a disease of asymmetry or hemihypertrophy associated with increased risk of malignancies including craniopharyngioma, testicular seminoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, and Wilms tumor
It should be noted, however, that the findings are only try to seminoma testicular cancer, which is the most prevalent type.
The seminoma subtype consists of cells that resemble CIS but that are not constrained within the seminiferous tubules.
