Abstract

Testicular cancer is presently one of the most curable solid tumors, and thanks to diagnostic, surgical, and medical advances over the last several decades, the treatment of this tumor serves as a paradigm for multimodal treatment of solid malignancies. Due to testicular cancer's predilection for younger patients, many of the seminal improvements and discoveries were made possible as a result of initial investigatory groundwork laid by military physicians treating servicemen. This article reviews historical contributions of the United States Military Medical Departments in the arena of testicular cancer treatment in the post-World War II era.
