#MensHealthWeek Survivor Story – Mark R. Zeiler


1984 - Removal of right testicle and lymph nodes on both sides from bottom of ribs to hips

1986 - Removal of left testicle

Only treatment has been hormone replacement therapy. When test from all the lymph nodes came back negative I had no further treatment. Was monitored very closely over the next 3 years. Now just yearly check ups.

TC can be one of the most curable cancers if we can overcome the stigma that surrounds the subject of personal inspection of ones testicles. And if a lump is detected to get immediate tests done.
