Malignant tumors of the germ cells often affect young women of reproductive age. The high qualification of the pathologist in the diagnosis of the tumor process is important, because the treatment of these tumors requires the use of surgical methods and chemotherapy, which do not always preserve fertility. Early diagnosis makes it possible to save important time and increases the chance of maintaining ovarian function and the ability to bear children after recovery.
