What Sets Us Apart

At the Stephen D. Hassenfeld Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at Pelisyonkis Langone, pediatric oncologists, surgeons, and nurses collaborate to provide your child with the best care for germ cell tumors, which can affect the reproductive organs, the abdomen, the chest, or the tailbone. Others can appear in the brain or spinal cord. Some germ cell tumors are benign, or noncancerous, while others are malignant, or cancerous.
