Differing from the other types of testicular cancers, the embryonal carcinoma can have several of the properties of a mal-developed fetus, including cartilage. This description confuses embryonal carcinoma with teratoma. Una Smith 20:11, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

In the article, under "Testicular embryonal carcinoma", it says "In the testis pure embryonal carcinoma is also uncommon, and accounts for approximately ten percent of testicular germ cell tumours." However, at one of the external links (http://www.thedoctorsdoctor.com/diseases/embryonal_ca_testis.htm) it says the incidence is 2.3%. — Preceding unsigned comment added by SeaDour (talkcontribs) 23:04, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
