The data of 1286 testis cancer persons were analyzed by the authors, which were identified in Hungary between 1981 and 1986. The comparison was carried out with international findings in this field. The incidence rate of testis tumor in Hungary reaches a value of 4.16/100,000 men/year, which seems to be quite near to the frequency of cases occurred in Northern-Europe. The patient's age was 32.9 year in the mean at the time of the diagnosis, and the age-specific incidence rate was the highest (11.2) between 25-34 years, according to international experiences. A significant difference was found in the frequency of testis cancer among 19 counties of Hungary. The extremely high testis cancer incidence in the county Vas (West-Hungary) requires further explanations. A seasonal pattern according to the patients birth months was shown, which did not correlate with data of other Hungarian authors concerning seasonal pattern of the undescendent testis.
