    Christine,

    I now this is VERY difficult and I am sure you are upset. What you're feeling is very normal. I am not familiar with your sons situation, but a quick search on the internet, found the following....

    - Juvenile granulosa-cell tumor is managed by inguinal orchiectomy and follow-up chest radiography for 1 year - Juvenile granulosa-cell tumors rarely metastasize

    - Prepubertal testicular teratoma, Leydig-cell tumors, and Sertoli-cell tumors are benign, and orchiectomy or testicular-sparing surgery with complete excision is curative.

    Testicular tumors account for 1-2% of all pediatric tumors, with an incidence of 0.05-2 per 100,000 children.


    Let us know what the rest of the report says.....and try to hang in there!

      Christine,
      The agonizing wait for the results is over, and now that you know what you're dealing with you can focus on moving to treatment for your son. There isn't a lot I could find on this either. From your last thread I think we urged you to find a specialist and I'd definatley go that way. Stay strong and please let us know if we can do anything at all.
