Abstract:

Although rising incidence rates of testicular germ cell tumors have been well documented in white men, relatively little is known about rates in men of Hispanic origin. In the current study, the authors compared germ cell tumor trends between men of Hispanic and non-Hispanic origin as a function of age at diagnosis.
