Germ Cell Tumors in Children

At the Stephen D. Hassenfeld Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone, pediatric oncologists, surgeons, and nurses collaborate to provide your child with the best care for germ cell tumors, which can affect the reproductive organs, the abdomen, the chest, or the tailbone. Others can appear in the brain or spinal cord. Some germ cell tumors are benign, or noncancerous, while others are malignant, or cancerous.

Our specialists offer a family-centered approach to cancer care, in which they address your child’s and your family’s needs during every stage of treatment and recovery.
