Special attention is focused on fertility issues, late effects of the primary therapy and the economical aspects of the different treatment policies. As a result of the third Consensus Conference, a consensual follow-up can be devised and a chapter dedicated to this controversial and not yet defined matter. This book is the state-of-the-art reference text on testis cancer and is an essential resource for all urologists, medical oncologists and radio-oncologists."@en ;
