Teratoma A type of germ cell tumour that may contain several types of body tissue. Teratomas are tumours made up of tissues, such as hair, muscle and bone. They most often occur in the ovaries in women and the testicles in men. They may be benign or malignant. Symptoms vary depending on the location. A painful lump or swelling may be apparent. Some babies have a mass that can be seen on an ultrasound before birth. Treatment often involves surgery. In rare cases when a teratoma is malignant, chemotherapy or radiation may be required.
