Radical orchidectomy

Radical orchidectomy is the removal of a testicle for cancer. The operation is carried out under general anaesthetic in most cases via a small incision in the groin. Most men are able to go home the same day. Some men wish to have a prosthesis (implant) inserted at the time of surgery. Sperm banking should take place before surgery where possible. 

Almost all patients will have some bruising in the scrotum following surgery. Further treatment with chemotherapy, radiotherapy and rarely further surgery may be required in the future.
