Overview

Germ cell tumors in children are growths that typically develop from reproductive cells in the ovaries in girls and in the testes in boys. In addition to gonadal germ cell tumors, the growths can occur in several other parts of the body, including the lower back, abdomen, chest, and inside the brain.

Germ cell cancers are not common, which is why it is critical to choose a medical center with top tier technologies and specialists who are experienced in diagnosing and treating the disease. At Sheba, every treatment program for children with germ cell tumors is custom designed at our Pediatric Hemato-Oncology Division, using the latest techniques and based on an integrative approach to healing. Depending on where the tumor is located, our hemato-oncologists collaborate with pediatric specialists from the Urology Department, Gynecology Department and the Surgery Division.
