Ovarian germ cell tumor

Overview

Type of disease: Rare conditions

Ovarian germ cell tumor is a disease in which malignant cancer cells form in the egg cells of the ovary. Germ cell tumors usually affect just one ovary and occur in teenage girls or young women. Ovarian germ cell tumors can be difficult to diagnose early, as often there are no symptoms in the early stages, though there can be swelling of the abdomen or bleeding after menopause.
