There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
A testicular tumor is a growth on the testicles. These are germ-cell tumors – masses of tissue formed by immature cells that normally would have developed into mature eggs (in a female) or sperm (in a male).
Many testicular tumors are benign. While they may grow in their original location, they do not often spread to other parts of the body. However, some testicular tumors can grow aggressively and metastasize (spread) to other parts of the body, most commonly to the lymph nodes, lungs, liver and central nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord.
Children, teens and young adults with testicular tumors are treated at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's through our Solid Tumor Center. Our treatment team includes medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, and pediatric subspecialists, including urologists, who have specialized expertise in treating testicular tumors.
Because of their unique expertise in treating these types of tumors, our urologists can help identify and, when possible, avoid potential side effects – such as infertility, sexual dysfunction or incontinence – that may result from cancer treatment.
