Hailey has a lot on her plate for the next few days. My prayers ask that Hailey has a germ cell tumor. In order to request such thing I needed to do some research to understand what that is. I thought I would share with those who are not familiar with GCTs. Background: Germ cell tumors (GCTs) are a distinct group of neoplasms with varied clinical presentation. Ninety-five percent of tumors arising in the testes are GCTs, indicating that they originate from the primordial germ cells. More than 90% of patients with GCT diagnosed early are cured. A delay in diagnosis correlates with a higher stage at presentation and, consequently, a lower cure rate. The success in treating GCTs in the past 2 decades is attributed largely to the effectiveness of cisplatin-containing combination chemotherapy in curing advanced disease.Hang in there little one.....our prayers are hoping you have GCTs.
