In brief: Absolutely!
Most extragonadal germ cell tumors can be cured! the treatment depends on the type of tumor and where it is located.
Some tumors, like mature teratomas, are cured when they are surgically removed. Others, like immature teratomas, require both surgery and chemotherapy. Ask your doctor to be honest with you about your chance for cure.
