Re: 18 years old; Ovarian Cancer Patient

My daughter was diagnosed with a germ cell tumor almost 2 years ago. She was 12 at the time. She had sharp pains for a couple weeks then fainted at school, took tests at the hospital and was operated on that night. (I just thought she was beginning to menstruate). It was unusual for this to happen to someone so young but the doctors said if you get cancer this is the one to get. It was very treatable and cureable. She had seven weeks of chemo and went back to school. That was Jan 29, 2004. She is doing great, gets tested every four months and is coming up on her second anniversary.

Re: My daughter was diagnosed with a germ cell tumor

That's good to know, my daughter has a germ cell tumor in her brian, can't be operated on it though as it has a main vein running through it, she is having chemo and radiotherapy

Re: My daughter was diagnosed with a germ cell tumor

I had an ovarian germ cell tumor 4 1/2 years ago. It was stage II. It is a very rare form of ovarian cancer, and also rare that I had it at age 48. I was told it is mostly found in young females. I had 3 sets of chemo, that lasted 2 months. It is very curable if caught early. It is also the same type of cancer as a male with testicular cancer. My oncologist is releasing me after my next visit (knock on wood!!!)
