The Testicular Cancer Resource Center

Welcome to the TCRC's Email Support Network!

Because of the often personal nature of Testicular Cancer, some folks prefer to get some one-on-one advice rather than broadcast their situation to the whole world. To help out in this, we have compiled a list people who are willing to provide confidential TC related support... many thanks to all who participate in this valuable manner of support! And if you would like to join in this effort, please send me a note.

Diagnosed at age 45 (March 96) with Stage IIc Seminoma. Treated with the orchiectomy, 4xBEP, plus 20 Days of Radiation. TC arrived out of the blue. I suffered a backache for several months, but the doctor said it was a trapped nerve. The TCRC, especially Chris and Doug, helped me obtain information regarding the cancer, as info in the UK was not very forthcoming. But with the help of my good wife and daughter and the TCRC, I have survived.
