Testicular seminoma

Case contributed by Dr Bahman Rasuli


Left testicular large mass sensation.

Patient Data

Age: 30 years
Gender: Male

The left testicle is enlarged and infiltrated by a large tumoral mass.

(right testicle: 29 x 32 x 46 mm = 21 ml.  Left testicle : 44 x 50 x 69 mm = 75 ml)

The tumor is heterogeneous but mainly of intermediate signal intensity on T2-weighted images. This is lower signal intensity than normal testicular parenchyma (as seen on the right).

After gadolinium administration, there is heterogeneous enhancement of the tumor associated with multiple internal enhancing septa.
