Oncology Questions? Ask an Oncologist for Answers ASAP
Did he have previous cancer in his testes?
Did he undergo chemotherapy and radiation?
Brain germinomas are quite rare. They are usually very responsive to chemotherapy and radiation. I cannot explain why your son passed 5 years later, especially without reviewing his records. I am sorry for everything you have been through and are going through. If you feel you need further information that I cannot provide, please feel free to relist, and perhaps change your question to the Oncology section.
