The testis is not a common specimen. Resections in children or young adults may be due to a nonneoplastic condition such as torsion, which produces the relatively nonspecific picture of hemorrhage and/or ischemic necrosis. Uncommonly in young children, undescended (cryptorchid) testes are removed because of an increased risk of developing germ cell tumors. There are also a few tumors that typically only occur in children. Most testicular tumors occur in men in their twenties to forties, although they also occur in the elderly.
