Germ cell tumors of the testis are relatively rare carcinomas, comprising only 1% of all tumors in men.

However, because it represents a tumor with a high cure rate, affects young individuals in full productive age and is a model of disease curable even in advanced stages, with chemotherapy, it is extremely important to recognize it and increase all efforts in basic and clinical research, to improve not only the already high proportion of cured patients, but also to reduce the toxicity of the treatments.
