Overview

Children with germ cell tumors are treated at Seattle Children's, an SCCA parent organization. Seattle Children's has a long history of successfully caring for children and teens who have germ cell tumors.

Seattle Children's cancer program brings together experts from more than 20 subspecialties to provide diagnostic services and treatments, including the very latest options. The team of pediatric oncologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, child life specialists, and chaplains partner with you to provide expert, family-centered care and compassionate support. We help you understand your child's health and treatment options because you, your child, and your family are an important part of the care team.

Because Children’s doctors take part in national and international research studies, and often lead them, Children’s can offer new treatment options that many other hospitals cannot give their patients. In 2008, U.S. News and World Report ranked Children’s cancer program #5 in the nation.
