Is There a Treatment for Leydig Cell Tumor?
Is there a treatment or cure for leydig cell tumor? My father in law is 62 and is realy sick right now, hope to get some information soon. Tthank you.
Malignant Leydig Cell testicular tumors are rare and therefore there is no one accepted form of treatment. Various chemotherapy regimes have been used with little uniform success. I suggest that an experienced medical oncologist be consulted who can properly evaluate the problem and develop a treatment plan.
