Can Swyer syndrome cause cancer?

By Marta Barranquero Gómez.
Last Update: 09/30/2019

Yes. There's a 40% risk of altered gonads becoming malignant. This can occur in childhood or early adolescence, even before the syndrome is diagnosed.

The most common tumors are gonadoblastoma and dysgerminomas.
