Childhood Brain Germ Cell Tumor: Disease Bioinformatics

A childhood brain germ cell tumor is a tumor that arises from primitive developing cells that are meant to create the reproductive system, but instead move to the brain and experience abnormal growth. The most common location of brain germ cell tumors is the pineal gland, but they can occur all over the brain. There are three different kinds of germ cell tumors in the brain: germinomas, teratomas, and nongerminomas. The cause of these tumors is often not known. The most typical symptoms of a childhood brain germ cell tumor are frequent urination, unusual thirst, early puberty, or vision changes. The prognosis of these germ cell tumors depend on the severity and location in the brain, but the tumors that are capable of being removed with surgery have a high average rate of survival.
