Germ Cell Tumor


A germ cell tumor is a type of tumor that originates from germ cells, which are the cells responsible for producing eggs in females and sperm in males. These tumors can occur in the ovaries, testicles, or other sites such as the brain, chest, or abdomen. Germ cell tumors can be benign or malignant and may require different treatment approaches depending on their location and severity.
