Testicular tumors are the most common solid tumors in young men, the vast majority of which are of germ cell origin. The staging of human cancers is paramount to correct patient management. Staging systems have passed through several developments leading to the release of the most recent 8th edition of the American Joint Committee for Cancer (AJCC) staging manual, which is based on the current understanding of tumor behavior and spread. In this review, the authors summarize the current AJCC staging of the germ cell tumors, highlight essential concepts, and provide insight into the most important parameters of testicular tumors.
