Scrotal pain as the first clinical manifestation of testicular seminoma: A case report

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Seminomas are the malignant testicular tumors most commonly diagnosed in young adult males. It consists of undifferentiated cells derived from the embryonic gonad. The tumor presents as a scrotal mass that may or may not be associated with pain. On ultrasonography, the mass appears hypoechoic with well-defined margins and an echo structure that tends to be homogeneous. Color Doppler studies reveal rich vascularization. This report describes a case of seminoma that presented with scrotal pain. The typical findings on ultrasonography and color Doppler were fundamental for correct diagnosis of this tumor.
