Diagnosis – Testicular Mesothelioma

The diagnosis of testicular mesothelioma is usually made at the time of surgery, even though it may be suspected beforehand. In most cases the testicle and scrotum on the side of the tumor will be removed. If the cancer occurs on both sides, a portion of one of the testicles may be spared during surgery. While surgical removal is the primary mode of treatment, chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy have also been used.
