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

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

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.
