Abstract

Objetive: Offer a scope of the relevance of the timely diagnosis of testicular cancer, based on a infrequent case of paratesticular rhabdomyosarcoma in an adult. Case report: The patient is a 39-year-old male who was admitted to the urology-surgery department because of an increase in scrotal volume, which has been progressive over the past two years, with gradual growth of the mass. Testicular ultrasound shows a notorious increase in volume of scrotal bags due to an apparent tumour or mass of hard consistency, of heterogeneous structure and solid aspect with ill-defined edges. Considering the clinical findings, testicular markers and imaging, a right paratesticular tumor was diagnosed. A right orchiectomy plus right paratesticular tumor exeresis was performed. Pathology concluded in paratesticular embryonic rhabdomyosarcoma with a broken capsule. Patient was discharged with outpatient follow-up and referred to the fourth level cancer hospital.
