Inherited genetic variation and predisposition to Testicular Germ Cell Tumor (TGCT)

Testicular germ cell tumor (TGCT) is the most common type of cancer in men ages 20-40. The number of cases identified in American men is increasing every year. The goal of our study is to find risk factors for developing TGCT. We hope that the findings from our study will greatly add to our understanding of TGCT and its causes, and improve treatment and prevention of this type of cancer.
