PLANELLES GOMEZ, J. et al. Bilateral testicular cancer: a report of four cases. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2007, vol.31, n.10, pp.1117-1122. ISSN 0210-4806.

Bilateral testicular cancer represents from 2 to 5 % of all testicle tumors, even though this prevalence nowadays is increasing. The median age of presentation was from 15 to years and in approximately 75 % of them occurred metachronously. There used to be concordance in histological findings between both testicles, being seminoma the most common histological type. The most important risk factor in the development of testicular cancer is the presence of intratubular germ cell neoplasia. Radical orquiectomy is the treatment to choose, although in some carefully selected patients testis-sparing surgery may be considered. We present four cases attended in our medical service, we analize the risk factors, management of tumors and a medical literature review is done.

Keywords : Testicular cancer; Bilateral; Intratubular germ cell neoplasia.
