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 are usually associated with pain. A rapidly growing tumor or tumor that bleeds suddenly may also cause testicular pain. Testicular tumors are the most common tumors in men age 15 to 35 years, however they are currently one of the most curable solid neoplasms.
