BENEDITO PEREZ DE INESTROSA, Teresa; MARTINEZ LARIOS, Beatriz; TORRES ANDRES, Bernardo  and  ALVAREZ PUGA, Belén. Testicular tumour. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2012, vol.5, n.3, pp.198-201. ISSN 2386-8201.

A case of a testicular germ cell tumour arises, an unusual neoplasia characterized by the fact that it affects young people and having a great ability for differentiation. It involves a 37 year old male seeking medical care on feeling a painful growth in his right testicle after being hit by a ball. On examination, a hard, stony nodule can be felt in the right testicle, with deep layer adherence. On referral to urology, and after ultrasound confirmation of the growth, a radical orchiectomy is performed. The histopathological diagnosis is for classic seminoma with an intense sarcoid reaction, extending to the coverings of the testis, epididymis and to the proximal portion of the cord.

Keywords : Germ cell tumor; Seminoma.
