Diagnosis of Ovarian Germ Cell Tumor

Usually all ovarian cancers do not show any specific symptoms till a very advance stage or the symptoms are misguiding towards other problems. Physical examination by the doctor is the best way to detect unusual cancer growth in this region.

  • Physical Examination of the pelvic area

  • Pap smear test

  • Ultrasound

  • Transvaginal ultrasound

  • CT Scan

  • MRI

  • PET Scan

  • Lymphangiogram

  • Serum Tumor Marker Test

  • Laparotomy

Once it has been determined that there is a tumor growth in the ovaries the doctors would do the staging of the cancer for planning your treatment. Cancer is generally divided into 4 stages:

  • Stage I: The cancer is present locally and hasn’t spread to other parts

  • Stage II: The cancer has locally advanced meaning it has spread to the nearby regions

  • Stage III: Cancer has spread to the pelvic region and lymph system

  • Stage IV: The cancer has spread to other organs too


Treatment Procedure of Ovarian Germ Cell Tumor

  • Ovarian Germ Cell Tumor is generally found in girls or women of childbearing age and that’s why special care is given to ensure that the fertility potential of the patient is not affected by the treatment.

  • If the germ cell tumor of the patient is not malignant or cancerous then it is simply removed surgically and no chemotherapy is required afterwards.

  • Only the affected ovary or fallopian tube is removed so that the patient can easily bear children at later stages.

  • If the tumor has spread to other parts then only total hysterectomy is required.

  • The tumor can be removed surgically through laparoscopic surgery too and the success rate of this treatment is very high if detected in early stages

  • Various factors like the age of the patient, stage of the cancer, physical fitness, etc. have a very important role in determining the success of the treatment and its effectiveness. With the help of modern medical science the treatment of cancer has become possible to a great extent and even at very advance stages the symptoms are reduced effectively.

  • The first approach of the doctors is to remove as much of the tumor as possible.

  • Hysterectomy is performed in which the part affected by the tumor is removed, either partially or completely. The procedure can be performed either through vaginal incision, abdominal incision or laparoscopic incision.

  • Three type of hysterectomies are performed:

    • Unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy: In this surgery one ovary and fallopian tube is removed

    • Bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy: In this surgery both the ovaries and fallopian tubes are removed

    • Omentectomy: In this procedure the omentum is removed

  • Surgery

    • The surgery is done under general anesthesia.

    • Stay of few days in the hospital may be required

    • Complete recovery may take several weeks

  • Chemotherapy

    • Chemotherapy is generally not required for benign tumors or the tumors which are not cancerous

    • If the germ cells are found to be cancerous then only chemotherapy is given. Usually three rounds of chemotherapy is given

    • Chemotherapy plays an important role in restricting the growth of malignant cells and spread of cancer

    • Chemotherapy is administered through mouth or intravenously

    • The drugs reach the bloodstream and restrict the growth of malignant cells

    • The drugs can also be injected directly into the area with cancerous growth

  • Radiotherapy

    • It is used for restricting the growth of malignant cells in the targeted areas

    • It is given after surgery and chemotherapy

    • It is used to shrink the spread of cancer cells


After the procedure

  • The patient will need to stay in the hospital for few days depending upon his/her condition, stage of the cancer and type of surgery performed.

  • Complete recovery may take few months and may take a bit longer for advance stage patients.

  • Follow up visits and tests will be required at regular intervals to check the growth of the cells or resurgence of cancer.

  • The patient will have to face some side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy like rapid hair loss, vomiting, weight loss, weakness, etc.

  • With the help of medication these symptoms can be reduced and things can be made easier for the patient.

  • If the symptoms like upset stomach, loss of appetite, abrupt menstrual cycle, fatigue and back pain, rapid weight loss, urinary problems, abdominal pain, bloating, etc. reappear and remain steady for long then the patient must consult the doctor again.
