  • Our patient had neglected a growing left testicular mass over a 5-year period. Due to the large size of the tumor a scrotal delivery was necessary. Pathology showed a 1.6 kg pure classic seminoma. Metastatic work up revealed stage IIC disease and he was treated with primary cisplatin-based chemotherapy and remains free of recurrence after 24 months. The potential risk of scrotal violation is discussed.
