016IC - Testis Cancer: Current Concepts & Controversies

Friday, May 18
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Location: MCC WEST, 2008

This course will address the timely and accurate diagnosis of testicular cancer and emphasize the appropriate integration of pathologic, radiographic and serologic variables in assessing individual patient's risk in both low and high-stage germ cell tumors (GCT). Important features regarding the natural history of GCTs will also be emphasized. Patient selection and treatment options for patients with clinical stage I nonseminomatous germ cell tumors (NSGCT) such as surveillance, 1° retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND) and chemotherapy will be discussed.

Brett S Carver, Associate Member, Associate Attending, Department of Surgery, Division of Urology, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
I am a urologic surgeon whose practice focuses on the comprehensive care of people with urologic cancers, with an emphasis on prostate and testicular cancers. In my clinical research, I participate in clinical trials and studies aimed at improving patients’ outcomes following multidisciplinary treatment for prostate cancer or testis cancer. I’ve maintained an active role in translational research studying the molecular pathways responsible for prostate cancer initiation and progression. Through this work we define the critical pathways driving the development of prostate cancer. Our findings may have diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic implications. Collectively, these studies have resulted in several NIH/NCI-funded grants, national meeting presentations, and peer-review journal publications.
