Patient Data

Gender: Male

Small solid (minimally vascular) mass sitting outside the testis in the tunica.  The patient was concerned about the lesion, so it was excised.

Case Discussion

Tunica mass lesions are rare and include

  • adenomatoid tumours
  • fibrous pseudotumour post trauma
  • mesothelioma

Adenomatoid tumours are benign and usually occur in the epididymis but may also be seen in the tunica vaginalis.
