A germinoma is a tumour typically occurring in the brain, particularly in the pineal or suprasellar regions. It belongs to a group of germ cell tumours originating from germ cells responsible for producing eggs in females and sperm in males. Germinomas are usually malignant and can be cancerous but tend to grow slowly. Symptoms of germinomas may include headaches, vision problems, hormonal imbalances, and cognitive changes. Treatment often involves a combination of surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy to remove or shrink the tumour and prevent its recurrence. Regular monitoring is also crucial to track the tumour’s progress and ensure timely intervention.
