Testicular Cancer - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: If you are a man, you have a pair of egg-shaped glands called testicles, enclosed in your scrotum, which is a pouch that hangs behind your penis. Your testicles produce sperm cells and make the hormone testosterone. Inside each testicle are coiled tubes called seminiferous tubules, where your body creates immature sperm cells, also known as germ cells or spermatogonia. Through a series of stages, called spermatogenesis, spermatogonia develop into mature sperm. Testicular cancer is a disease of abnormal cell growth in one or both of your testicles. It usually begins in your germ cells, where genetic damage or changes, called mutations, cause the cells to grow uncontrollably. The cancerous germ cells clump together to form a tumor, which continues to grow. In most cases, these mutations occur in your germ cells and are called germ cell tumors. Doctors classify germ cell tumors as nonseminoma or seminoma, or based on the appearance of the cells under a microscope. Nonseminomatous tumors are usually more aggressive. They grow and spread quickly, while seminomatous tumors tend to progress at a slower rate. Symptoms of testicular cancer may include a painless mass on your testicle, or testicular pain or swelling. If you have testicular cancer, your doctor may recommend surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or a combination of treatments based on the type and stage of the tumor. Your treatment will begin with the removal of the cancerous testicle through a radical inguinal orchiectomy. For this procedure, your surgeon will make an incision in your lower abdomen then your surgeon will remove your testicle from your scrotum. Your surgeon will close the incision with sutures or surgical staples. Next, your pathologist will analyze the testicle to determine which type of cancer you have, and to plan further treatment. If you have enlarged abdominal lymph nodes, or samples of your blood indicate the presence of cancer following your orchiectomy surgery, your doctor may recommend chemotherapy. Chemotherapy uses drugs to stop cancer from progressing, by killing the cancer cells that may have spread through your lymph nodes to other parts of your body. If your tumor contains the more aggressive nonseminoma cells, your surgeon may perform a retroperitoneal lymph node dissection after you receive chemotherapy. During this procedure, your surgeon will insert laparoscopic tools through small incisions in your abdomen. Then, your surgeon will remove your abdominal lymph nodes, including any cancer cells that may have spread to them. If you have a seminomatous tumor, your doctor may recommend radiation therapy, or radiotherapy, which uses high-energy x-rays to kill cancer cells only in the treatment area. During this procedure, your doctor will direct external-beam radiation therapy at your retroperitoneal abdominal lymph nodes. The radiation beam will kill any cancer cells that may have spread there.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your illustration to the defendants, with a copy to the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.

I appreciate your help!"

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"A few words about The Doe Report: recently in a brachial plexus injury case, we used an image from The Doe Report to demonstrate the injury. We downloaded the PDF file image, and were amazed at the quality. The hard copies that you sent were even more clear. As well, we could not have been happier when you customized the image and reversed the injury from the left shoulder to the right shoulder, which is where our client's injury was.

The speed and cost-effectiveness of the product made it the perfect tool for our purposes. We will use The Doe Report again in future cases."

"I would like to thank all of you at Medical Legal Art for all the assistance you provided. It was a result of the excellent, timely work that we were able to conclude the case successfully.

I feel very confident that our paths will cross again."
