    This article covers germ cell tumours, often abbreviated GCT, which classically arise in the gonads (ovary, testis). They are also found in the midline and make appearances in neuropathology (e.g. pineal gland) and in the mediastinum. These are called 'intracranial germ cell tumours'. They are also called embryonal tumours. There are two main types of intracranial germ cell tumour: non-secreting germinomas and secreting germ cell tumours. They can spread via the cerebro-spinal fluid around the brain and to the spine. They represent around 1 - 2% of all brain :

    The exact causes of testicular germ cell tumours are unknown. However, there are a few factors that increase the risk - failed testicular descent: failure of the testes to descend into the scrotal sac (normally the testicles descend in the first year of a baby’s life), having a family history of testicular germ cell tumours and background; testicular germ cell tumours are more common in.

The book aims to provide an overview of current knowledge regarding germ cell tumors. It deals with the clinical presentations, treatment modalities, the biology and genetics of germ cell tumors in children and adults. Most chapters are focused on testicular germ cell tumors whose incidence has been increasing in young : Angabin Matin.

(Eds.) Free Preview. Germ cell tumors arise predominantly from within the testis, but an important subset of germ cell tumors are extragonadal in origin. Overall, approximately 5% to 10% of all germ cell cancers arise in nongonadal sites, particularly in the mediastinum and by: 1.

Published online: Aug This PDQ cancer information summary for health professionals provides comprehensive, peer-reviewed, evidence-based information about the treatment of childhood extracranial germ cell tumors. It is intended as a resource to inform and assist clinicians who care for cancer patients.

Childhood extracranial germ cell tumors may be benign or malignant. Extracranial germ cell tumors may be benign (noncancer) or malignant. Childhood extracranial germ cell tumors are grouped as gonadal or extragonadal extracranial tumors.

Malignant extracranial germ cell tumors are tumors that form outside the brain. Intracranial germ cell tumours are rare tumours affecting mainly male adolescents, mainly in Asia; here the authors identify frequent mutations in Cited by: Ovarian germ cell tumors (OGCTs) comprise 20–25% of all ovarian cancers arising from germ cells of ovary.

Mature teratoma (dermoid) is the only benign and commonest germ cell tumor. Only 3–5% germ cell tumors are malignant, dysgerminomas being the most common. These tumors occur in adolescents and reproductive age group. Hence, its association with pregnancy is not : Mamta Gupta, Vandana Saini.

Common signs of germ cell tumors include: A mass on your ovaries or testicles. Belly pain and swelling (caused by tumor) Bathroom troubles (a hard time pooping or holding in your pee, if the tumor is near your pelvis) Breast growth, pubic hair, or vaginal bleeding at an earlier age than normal.

Belly or chest pain. Overview. Germ cell tumors are growths that form from reproductive cells. Tumors may be cancerous or noncancerous. Most germ cell tumors that are cancerous occur as cancer of the testicles (testicular cancer) or cancer of the ovaries (ovarian cancer).

Some germ cell tumors occur in other areas of the body, such as the abdomen, brain and chest. Germ Cell Tumors has been carefully illustrated with new photographs that illustrate diagnostic approaches, surgical techniques, and management complications. Germ cell tumors are found widely throughout the body, and encompass a wide range of individual tumors.

This article does not deal with any specific body locations. For detailed discussion please refer the articles listed at the end of this page. Primary Mediastinal Germ Cell Tumor The mediastinum is the most common site of extragonadal germ cell tumors [11], con-stituting 50–70% of all extragonadal germ cell tumors.

In adults, extragonadal germ cell tumors account for 15% of primary ante-rior mediastinal tumors [12]. More than half of mediastinal germ cell tumors are mature teratomas. Management of paediatric extracranial germ-cell tumours carries a unique set of challenges.

Germ-cell tumours are a heterogeneous group of neoplasms that present across a wide age range and vary in site, histology, and clinical behaviour.

Patients with germ-cell tumours are Cited by: 9. Female malignant ovarian germ cell tumours (MOGCTs) are rare, but early diagnosis and multiagent chemotherapy are 1associated with high cure rates of % (range –%).

However, it is possible for a germ cell tumour to develop in other parts of the body. As a baby develops during pregnancy, the cells producing eggs or sperm normally move to the.After a germ cell tumor is diagnosed, doctors need to assess how advanced it is, which is called staging the tumor.

To stage the tumor, doctors will need to know the size of the tumor, if it has spread (metastasized) and if it has affected lymph nodes and other tissues.

Because germ cell tumors can vary greatly, and can arise in different parts.
