Abstract

Neoplasms in the testis and in the testicular adnexa of elderly patients are completely different from those observed in younger patients. Indeed, although conventional seminomas and nonseminomas are mainly observed in the age range of 20-45 years, spermatocytic seminoma, malignant Leydig tumors, and lymphomas in the testis and sarcomas in the paratesticular region are encountered in individuals older than 60 years of age. Here, we discuss the testis and paratesticular region neoplasm more commonly diagnosed in elderly men.
