Unlike seminomas in humans, seminomas in animals are not typically sub-classified as classical or spermatocytic types and more closely resemble human spermatocytic seminomas.
Concurrent prostate diseases should also be excluded prior to initiation of any remedial therapy.
Most seminomas, if treated early with elective castration, have a high survival rate.
