New tumor markers of testis cancer.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Potential tumor markers for testis cancer have become numerous with the new molecular techniques available. New protein markers have been evaluated, and histologic factors have shown correlations with stage of disease. Cytogenetic analysis studies have also shown associations with stage progression. Chromosomal markers, oncogenes, and tumor suppressor genes are possible candidates for tumor markers. These new potential tumor markers may become as commonplace as the established markers and may enhance diagnosis, staging, and treatment of testis cancer.
