dc.description.abstract Testicular cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in young men and among the most curable of all neoplasms, making patients' long-term physical, psychological and social well-being of major concern. To date, research on outcomes has been restricted almost entirely to survivors in Europe and the USA. The current article reviews the international literature with a view to developing directions for future research in the Asia-Pacific region. We conclude that planning interventions to improve outcomes awaits further, prospective, controlled studies aimed at establishing the predictive value not only of socio-demographic, disease and treatment variables but also of psycho-social variables underlying adjustment and recovery. Ideally, research of this kind would: (i) highlight aspects of the experience of testicular cancer and its treatment that might be targeted by changes to patterns of care, and (ii) identify groups at risk of poor outcomes who could be identified for early intervention through screening. Planning of prospective research would itself benefit from further, large-scale, cross-sectional research aimed at identifying those variables that would prove most informative when tracked over time.
