  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility and effect of a program including information, counseling and an individualized physical activity program on physical and psychological health during and after chemotherapy in patients with testicular cancer. It is hypothesized that the patients are able to complete the intervention with individual adjustments.
