Neoplasia of the Testis – Orchidectomy Specimen


The dataset has been developed for the reporting of both partial and radical orchidectomy specimens from patients with neoplasia of the testis. The protocol applies to all germ cell and sex cord-stromal tumours of the testis. Paratesticular malignancies are excluded. This dataset does not include information on the excision of residual masses after chemotherapy. A separate dataset is available for the reporting of retroperitoneal lymphadenectomy specimens. For bilateral tumours, complete a separate dataset for each.
