Is There a Treatment for Leydig Cell Tumor?

12/03/2002

Question:

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.

Answer:

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.
