Abstract

Testicular dermoid cysts are extremely rare. They are classified as benign tumors, and although a radical orchiectomy is the standard procedure for clinically suspicious malignant tumors, if the preoperative prediction is a benign lesion, testis-sparing surgery is a feasible option. We report a testicular dermoid cyst in a 27-year-old male with the clinical presentation of a painless, hard, testicular mass. Testis-sparing surgery was performed, and no tumor recurrence was noted during 6 months' follow-up. We review the literature on the clinicopathologic features of this rare testicular tumor and the therapeutic recommendations.
