The only exception was a so called "occult seminoma". It showed only a small difference between the stem-line of tumor and normal cells of testis. So, by using DNA-estimation, it was possible to make a correct diagnosis all 18 patients, suffering from tumor of the testis. The aneuploid stem-lines of seminomas did not… CONTINUE READING
