Question: Has anyone here had or had a children born with a sacrococcygeal teratoma? I know this is a longshot, but, I would like to know more. I was born with a benign one and at 18 y/o just realized that I have no tailbone after doing some research and well, my anatomy. If anyone knows anything about this, has the child/you developed cancer again later in life, and was their original teratoma malignant or benign? Share your stories, please. Thanks to everyone. Pardon me... please don't comment on the fact that I accidentally typed an "a" in front of children. I am more than aware of the grammatical inaccuracies there. Allow me to rephrase it. "Has anyone here had or had children born with a sacrococcygeal teratoma?"

Answer: My best friend's husband was born with a benign ST. he is now 57 and, as far as I know, has never had any trouble with it. Their son is healthy (he's 22) and their daughter, unofrtunately, has a very rare congenital condition but it is NOT related to her husband's ST.
