Comments:
Dysgerminomas are large (average size 15 cm), lobulated, solid, soft fleshy tumors with yellow-tan, cream, or gray white appearance. Areas of cystic change, hemorrhage and necrosis may be present but are not common. The tumors arising in a background of gonadoblastoma often show calcification.

The image shows dysgerminoma in a 36 y/o female. The tumor is solid, yellow-white tumor with focal necrosis. Image copyright: pathorama.ch.
