This week Jim Bergamo of KVUE News did a Special Report on the age group most affected by testicular Cancer. Click here to see the full story with Dr. Richard Garza, the radiation oncologist at The Austin Center for Radiation Oncology. You’ll also hear from one of our patients, Thomas Suethe, about his journey battling testicular cancer, and hear what Thomas is telling his son, Carter, about the importance of doing monthly self-exams and early detection. Carter is in the prime age group, young men age 15-35, at risk for developing testicular cancer. If caught early, testicular cancer is one of the most curable cancers. Monthly self-exams and reporting any lumps or abnormalities to your physician are critical to successful treatment of testicular cancer.

When you receive a diagnosis that warrants further treatment, it is OK to want more from your healthcare provider. More dignity, more privacy, more respect, more trust… and more options.
At the Austin Center for Radiation Oncology (ACFRO), you will be met by a compassionate team of healthcare professionals who continually strive to provide more… to each and every patient, each and every day. We also employ the latest advancements in radiation therapy—therapies that are not widely available in other outpatient treatment centers. And while this state-of-the-art technology offers more (more precision, more effectiveness and more safety), it also offers less (less time in the treatment room, less holding still for treatment and fewer damaging side effects).
