Non-seminomatous germ cell tumor of testis
Synonyms: Non-dysgerminomatous germ cell tumor of testis | Testicular non seminomatous germ cell tumor | Testicular non-dysgerminomatous germ cell tumor
A form of testicular germ cell tumor occurring in the third decade of life with a usually painless unilateral mass in the scrotum or in some cases with gynaecomastia and/or back and flack pain. The clinical course is more aggressive than testicular seminomatous germ cell tumors with rapid involvement of blood vessels and a poorer prognosis. Histologically the tumour can be either undifferentiated (embryonal carcinoma) differentiated (teratoma yolk sac tumor choriocarcinoma) or can consist of a mixture of seminomatous and nonseminomatous components.
