Abstract

Epidermoid cyst of the testis is a rare, benign testicular tumor. It is estimated that epidermoid cyst of the testis represent less than 1% of all testicular tumors. Opinion is divided as to the best treatment for this condition. The majority opinion favours excision of the tumour and preservation of the testis, although some recommend radical inguinal orchiectomy. We present a case of a 26 years old man with an epidermoid cyst of the testis and submitted to organ preserving surgery. Organ preserving surgery with the excision or enucleation of the epidermoid cyst suffices, having not been reported relapse or metastasis after such treatment. The longest reported follow up time is 37 years. The conservative management of epidermoid cyst is an alternative with important psycho logical benefits and without jeopardizing life.
