  • Case presentationHistory25C/o hemoptysis, abdominal discomfort; History of UDT, right side-operatedNo child*

  • On exam:Generally wellScar R groinNodes palpable, inguinalBig R testis, normal L testisWhat next?

  • Epidemiology

    Incidence2-3/100 000 in whites L 2-3% bilateral95% Germ cellAge16-35 yrs

  • AetiologyGonadal dysgenesisHereditary not clearEnvironmental factorsChemical carcinogens Infections7-10% in undescended testis- Dysgenesis, temp, Abn blood supply, endocrine dysf(x)

  • Risk Factors

  • Tumour markersAFPB-HCGLDH

  • Metastatic patternLocal Lymphatichematogenous

  • Clinical presentetion50% have metastasis on diagnosis10% present with this as first sxNeck mass, respiratory, GIT, bone pain, neurological, lower extremities LocalHeavy feeling or painless swelling10% acute testicular pain

    5% Gynecomastia

  • ExaminationLocal examContra lateral vs. ipsilateral testis, EpydidimisSpermatic cordAbdominalGeneral

  • Differential diagnosisTesticular torsion Epidydimo-orchitisHydrocoeleInguinoscrotal hernia paratesticular tumours

  • StagingA- confined to testisB -Retroperitoneal spreadB1-3C- Metastatic disease Or TNMS staging

  • Prognosis Mortality 50% in 1970Cure rate of > 95 % now!MorbidityTumour related Treatment relatedFertility?,QOL

  • PrognosisSeminoma overall cure rate is > 90%Age older patientsSperm cryopreservation?B HCG positive in 5-10% very radio & chemosensitive

  • Non seminomaChoriocarcinoma- Can present with extensive metastasiss with paradoxically small primaryTeratoma- mature and immature elementsYolk sac tumour- In infants and young children

  • General comments Misdiagnosis common No transscrotal biopsies Good work-upQuick referralFollow up !

  • OtherExtragonadal germ cell tumoursLeydig cell 10% malignant, present in children with virilising and in adults feminising.Sertoli cell- any age.10% malignantGonadoblastoma- In dysgenetic gonads

  • Secondary tumoursLymphomaLeukaemic infiltrationMetastasis- prostate, Breast, kidney
