Extragonadal Germ Cell Tumors Treatment (PDQ®)

Benign Teratoma

Benign teratomas are treated with surgical excision only. These tumors are frequently very large, and the surgical procedure can be formidable.

Current Clinical Trials

Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with benign teratoma. The list of clinical trials can be further narrowed by location, drug, intervention, and other criteria.

General information about clinical trials is also available from the NCI Web site.
