Follow up treatment

A friend of mine recently had a testical removed due to testicular cancer. Considering his age he was one in 2% of men that are diagnoised in the 50 and up age group.

He has been told that follow up treatment is required and he his trying to decide which treatment would be best. Of course on option is radiation and chemo, but the other option the presented to him was that he have his lymp nodes removed. At this point all test indicate the cancer has not spread to the lymp nodes, but of course you will never be sure until they are biopsied.

My question is, how do you decide what treatment is your best option? He is currently leaning towards the surgery.
