LLARENA IBARGUREN, Roberto et al. Metachronic testicular metastasis secondary to clear cell renal adenocarcinoma. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.4, pp.531-533. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: To report one case of unusual testicular metastasis from a renal origin. Methods: 57-year-old patient with disseminated right renal cancer under treatment who presented bone metastasis and a painful nodule in the upper pole of the right testicle during his follow-up with medical therapy, making surgery necessary. The pathology result was clear cell adenocarcinoma. Results: Six months later the patient continues under oral Sorafenib without evidence of new metastatic implants. Conclusions: Testicular secondary metastatic tumors account for less than 1% of old testicular tumors. In patients in the fifth and sixth decades, mainly if they are affected by other neoplasias, testicular masses use to be metastatic implants. The most frequent origin is prostate.
