What is the Most Common Testicular Tumor in Infants?
The most common testicular tumors in young children are teratomas and yolk sac tumors. A teratoma is a germ cell tumor that, when seen under a microscope, looks like the three layers of a growing embryo. These are the most common benign testicular tumors. Children usually show signs of a teratoma at around 14 months of age.
A yolk sac tumor resembles the yolk sac of an early human embryo. While yolk sac tumors are dangerous if they develop in adult males, among young children, they are often treated successfully.
Lawyers That Can Help
If you took Zantac during pregnancy and your child was diagnosed with cancer, we believe you have a claim against the drug makers that could result in financial compensation for you and your family. We represent Zantac cancer victims from all over the country, and we intend to obtain justice on their behalf.
Our firm filed some of the first personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits in the country against the manufacturers of Zantac, alleging the popular drug contains cancer-causing NDMA at levels 3,000 times greater than the FDA’s legally allowable daily limit.
Among other things, our lawsuits maintain that the makers of Zantac (ranitidine) knew that they could make huge profits by convincing consumers that Zantac was harmless to humans, and that full disclosure of the true risks of Zantac would limit the amount of money they could make. Furthermore, despite the fact that the drug makers knew or should have known that Zantac posed a grave risk of harm, they failed to exercise reasonable care to warn of the dangerous risks associated with use and exposure.
Since 1973, the attorneys at Baum Hedlund Aristei & Goldman have obtained more than $4 billion in verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients. In 2019, we co-tried a cancer case against corporate giant Monsanto on behalf of a California couple who alleged exposure to Roundup weed killer caused them to develop cancer. The jury trial culminated in a $2.055 billion verdict for our clients, the ninth-largest personal injury jury verdict in U.S. history.
