What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope
What are Extragonadal Germ Cell Tumors?
Understanding the characteristics of your disease is the first step toward cancer remission.
Extragonadal germ cell tumors (EGGCTs) arise from developing sperm or egg cells that travel from the gonads (sex organs) to other parts of the body. These malignant or cancerous growths may start growing anywhere in the body, although they often begin in organs such as the pineal gland in the brain, the area between the lungs (mediastinum), or the back wall of the abdomen (retroperitoneum).
What are the Types of Extragonadal Germ Cell Tumor?
Here at New Hope Unlimited, we take pride in being leading providers of comprehensive and non-invasive treatments that address malignant extragonadal germ cell tumors. EGGCTs are divided into two types:
A seminoma is a germ cell tumor that occurs in the testicle, mediastinum, or other extra-gonadal locations. With a survival rate above 95 percent if diagnosed early, this cancerous neoplasm is one of the most treatable and curable cancers.
A nonseminoma is a form of testicular cancer that develops in specialized sex cells called germ cells, which is responsible for creating sperm. Embryonal carcinoma, yolk sac tumor, teratoma, and choriocarcinoma are examples of nonseminomas.
Addressing the Signs of Extragonadal Germ Cell Tumors
As an alternative cancer treatment center, among our missions is to reverse the following extragonadal germ cell tumor symptoms:
- Breathing problems
- Chest pains
- Persistent coughing
- Frequent fevers
- Difficulty walking
- Changes in vision
- Changes in bowel habits
What Caused Your Cancer?
What causes extragonadal germ cell tumors is unknown. Currently, the only identified risk factor for extragonadal germ cell tumors is Klinefelter syndrome, which is associated with mediastinal nonseminomatous germ cell tumors that are distinguished by their location on the midline from the pineal gland to the tailbone at the bottom of the spine (coccyx).
How Do Doctors Confirm a Cancer Diagnosis?
Prognosis describes how severe your cancer is and your chances for survival. Fortunately, an effective means of improving your extragonadal germ cell tumor prognosis and life expectancy is to receive an early and accurate diagnosis.
The following diagnostic tests will help your doctor detect EGGTCs:
- Medical history and physical exam
- Chest X-rays
- Serum tumor marker test, including:
- Computerized tomography (CT) scans
- Sample tissue removal for testing (biopsies), such as:
- Excisional biopsy
- Incisional biopsy
- Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy
- Core biopsy
After receiving an extragonadal germ cell tumor diagnosis, the next most important step is to plan your treatment with New Hope Unlimited.
