Testicular Mass

  • Christopher L. Coogan

The differential diagnosis of a painless testicular mass includes spermatocele, hydrocele, varicocele, inguinal hernia, and testicular tumor. Testicular torsion, epididymitis, trauma, and incarcerated inguinal hernia may also be confused with a testicular tumor, but these are usually associated with pain. A rapidly growing tumor or tumor that bleeds suddenly may cause testicular pain. Testicular tumors are the most common tumors in men aged 15–35 years; fortunately, however, they are currently one of the must curable solid neoplasms.
