Özet

Testicular cancer accounts for only 1% of all malignancies in men, and it is more common in, black men.(1) Patients with cryptorchidism are 2.5 to 8 times more likely to have testicular cancer.(2) Testicular cancer commonly presents as a painless mass or vague discomfort in the scrotum. It is essential to obtain the patient's medical history to narrow the possible diagnoses. The principal role of sonography in the diagnosis of testicular cancer is to help distinguish intratesticular from extratesticular lesions because most extratesticular masses are benign, and intratesticular masses are more likely to be malignant.(3,4)
