LLARENA IBARGUREN, Roberto et al. Adenomatoid tumor of the epididymis: Report of five cases. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2008, vol.61, n.7, pp.831-834. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objective: Adenomatoid tumor of the epididymis is unfrequent, benign, with no malignant outcomes described. Methods: We report five cases, with patient's ages varying from 31 to 76 years, and tumor sizes from 6 to 30 mm. All patients underwent surgery with excision of the mass, some of them after several months of growing. In one of the cases the evolution reached six years. Results: None of the cases presented recurrence or bad outcome after surgery. Pathology confirmed the benign adenomatoid character in all cases. Conclusions: Despite the clinical, ultrasound and physical examination findings suggest the localization in the epididymis and its benign character, surgical exploration is mandatory with surgical excision of the paratesticular mass.
