My mum yesterday was diagnosed with dysgerminoma she is 64 it is only in her lung and not anywhere else (apparently this is rare) when I have tried to read up on this it says its usually found in young women in their ovaries. my mum has none she had a hysterectomy approx 25 years ago. She has an appointment for a PET scan next week and will probably start radiotherapy the week after. any advise/help would be appreciated. Doctor said he has never seen this in a female this is a male thing?? and that males usually respond well to treatment and cannot see it being any diferent for a female
