Torosa® Saline-Filled Testicular Prosthesis

Empowering Survivors Beyond the Standard

It’s more than cosmetic. For testicular cancer survivors, the physical and emotional trauma from the removal of a testicle may result in long-lasting feelings of loss, uneasiness or shame. Simply providing the option for a testicular prosthesis may help alleviate these effects and assist in their overall recovery

Restoring confidence after cancer

Testicular prostheses have been reported by numerous investigators to result in psychological benefits and high levels of patient satisfaction.

A testicular implant may help alleviate feelings of loss, uneasiness, and shame resulting from orchiectomy. It is designed to help restore a more natural look and feel of the testicles in the scrotum. Discussing a testicular implant early in patient consultation and considering concurrent placement may reduce the emotional impact of orchiectomy and assist patients in their overall recovery.

 

Beyond the standard

Clinical studies recommend all patients undergoing orchiectomy should be offered a testicular implant, regardless of age. Adopting this “new standard” in your practice can help empower survivors through shared decision-making about their life after cancer.

Offering an implant

It matters. While nearly all testicular cancer patients say they would want to be offered the option of an implant, less than half of them are.

Beating cancer is just the beginning

When a person is diagnosed with testicular cancer, removing the cancer by orchiectomy is often the primary focus for both the
patient and their doctor. While survival is the focus, physical and emotional recovery are important. Survivorship goes beyond
surgery, to helping these patients move forward and thrive in their life after cancer treatment and orchiectomy.
