Time trends in accuracy of classification of testicular tumours, with clinical and epidemiological implications.
Initial classifications of 1009 testicular tumours were reviewed as part of a population based survey of all testicular neoplasms in Victoria, Australia, between 1950 and 1978.
All reviews were made by one of two pathologists at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Institute, using the system of the British Testicular Tumour Panel.
Accuracy of diagnosis varied markedly over the time period and with pathological category.
Seven cases were initially designated malignancies but were determined to be non-malignant conditions upon review.
