To improve your chances of recovery, follow your treatment schedule for your extracranial germ cell tumor. If you have been prescribed chemotherapy drugs, make sure that you take them in the proper dosage and at the proper times. Visit your doctor regularly for blood tests and other means your doctor takes to monitor the progress of your treatment. Even if your tumor has been obliterated, it may recur in the future. Continue to visit your doctor regularly, check yourself for symptoms of another tumor, and maintain a generally healthful lifestyle.
