JANEIRO PAIS, José Manuel et al. Metastasis of colon adenocarcinoma to the epididymis and spermatic cord. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.7, pp.746-748. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: To report the case of an epididymal and spermatic cord metastasis of a colon adenocarcinoma. Methods/Results: We present the case of a 67 years old man, who presents several months after subtotal left colectomy for a left colon adenocarcinoma (pT3 NoMo), with a symptomatic right palpable testicular tumour. Right orchiectomy was done, demonstrating colon adenocarcinoma metastasis. Conclusions: Epididymal and spermatic cord metastases are very infrequent and they usually are found incidentally after prostate cancer orchyectomy.

Keywords : Colon carcinoma; Metastasis; Epididymis; Spermatic cord.
