|The Testicular Cancer Resource Center|
Testicular Cancer is relatively rare. We all know that. So while you can go to the nearest book store and find a shelf of books on breast cancer or prostate cancer or heart disease, you simply are not going to find a book on testicular cancer. Fortunately, that does not mean that they don't exist; you just have to look harder. The online bookstores make this simple.
What follows is a list of all the books that I could find that dealt in some way with testicular or extragonadal germ cell tumors. While a few medical books at the bottom of the page discuss the nature and treatment of the disease, most of these books talk about cancer through a biography. I have not read them all, but the ones I have are very compelling and informative. For your information, all these links go to amazon.com. ANY purchases that you make using these links, be it one of these books or videos or anything else on their site, will help benefit the TCRC. We earn a small commission from every sale... so if you are interested in any of these books, go ahead and buy them now. I've checked, the prices are generally very good.
