Serum tumor markers and testicular germ cell tumors: a primer for radiologists.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2019 Mar;44(3):1083-1090

University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, 11100 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH, 44106, USA.

Serum tumor markers (STMs) play a critical role in the diagnosis, staging and follow-up of both seminomatous and nonseminomatous testicular germ cell neoplasms. Levels of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), especially those measured after orchiectomy, also have implications for patient prognosis. Given that testicular germ cell tumors represent the most common solid tumor in men aged 20-34, radiologists must have familiarity with the clinical utilization and implications of these STMs. Read More

MR Imaging of the Testicular and Extratesticular Tumors: When Do We Need?

Magn Reson Imaging Clin N Am 2019 Feb 29;27(1):151-171. Epub 2018 Oct 29.

Section of Body Imaging, Yale School of Medicine, 20 York Street, PO Box 208042, New Haven, CT 06520-8042, USA.

Testicular ultrasound is typically the first-line imaging examination in evaluating scrotal pathology. However, MR imaging can often provide valuable additional information, especially when ultrasound and/or clinical examinations are inconclusive. This is particularly evident when encountering testicular or paratesticular lesions, where accurate localization and characterization are paramount for management and prognosis. Read More

MRI of testicular malignancies.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2019 Mar;44(3):1070-1082

Department of Clinical Radiology, Medical School, University of Ioannina, University Campus, 45110, Ioannina, Greece.

Although testicular carcinoma represents approximately only 1% of solid neoplasms in men, it is the most common malignancy between young men. The two main histologic categories are testicular germ cell tumors (TGCTs), including seminomas and nonseminomas, accounting for 90-95% of testicular neoplasms and sex cord-stromal tumors. Scrotal MRI, including a multiparametric protocol, has been proposed as a valuable supplemental imaging technique in the investigation of testicular pathology. Read More

Is there still a place for retroperitoneal lymph node dissection in clinical stage 1 nonseminomatous testicular germ-cell tumours? A retrospective clinical study.

BMC Urol 2018 Oct 26;18(1):95. Epub 2018 Oct 26.

MVZ Hanse Histologikum, Hamburg, Germany.

Background: Primary retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND) ultimately lost its role as the standard management of clinical stage (CS) 1 nonseminomatous (NS) testicular germ cell tumours (GCTs) in Europe when the European Germ Cell Cancer Consensus Group released their recommendations in 2008. Current guide-lines recommend surgery only for selected patients but reasons for selection remain rather ill-defined. We evaluated the practice patterns of the management of CS1 patients and looked specifically to the role of RPLND among other standard treatment options. Read More

Testicular cavernous hemangioma associated with testicular torsion - case report and review of literature.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2018 27;49:247-250. Epub 2018 Jun 27.

Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Surgery, General Hospital, Klagenfurt, Austria. Electronic address:

Introduction: Testicular neoplasms that are derived from connective tissue, blood vessels and musculature are uncommon and intra-testicular tumors of vascular origin are extremely rare; both are benign in nature. Testicular hemangioma is exceedingly rare and typically occurs in patients younger than 20 years, the age in which a primary germ cell tumor of the testis may present, necessitating a radical approach to management with orchidectomy, although potential conservative focal partial surgical excision is desirable. Hemangiomas of the testis have a similar sonographic and magnetic resonance imaging appearance to that of malignant tumors of the testis, especially seminoma. Read More

Clin Nucl Med 2018 Sep;43(9):699-700

From the Departments of Nuclear Medicine.

Prostate adenocarcinoma (PCa) is the most frequently diagnosed malignancy in the male population, with the most common sites for secondary lesions being the lymph nodes, bones, and lungs. Testicular metastases from PCa are very rare and mostly identified incidentally after therapeutic orchiectomy for advanced PCa or during autopsy. Here we present a case involving a 64-year-old man with biochemical recurrence of castrated oligometastatic PCa that presented as solitary testicular metastasis on Ga-PSMA ligand positron emission tomography/computed tomography.

Spectrum of Extratesticular and Testicular Pathologic Conditions at Scrotal MR Imaging.

Radiographics 2018 May-Jun;38(3):806-830

From the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences, Emory University School of Medicine, 1364 Clifton Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30322 (P.K.M., D.A.B., P.A.H., J.P., C.C.M.); Department of Clinical Imaging, Hamad Medical Corporation, Doha, Qatar (A.S.A.); and Department of Radiology, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, Ill (A.C., H.G., F.H.M.).

Diagnostic workup of scrotal lesions should begin with a complete clinical history and physical examination, including analysis of risk factors such as family history of testicular cancer, personal history of tumor in the contralateral testis, and cryptorchidism, followed by imaging. Scrotal ultrasonography (US) with a combination of gray-scale and color Doppler techniques has been the first-line imaging modality for evaluation of testicular and extratesticular lesions because of its low cost, wide availability, and high diagnostic accuracy. However, US has limitations related to operator dependence, the relatively small field of view, and lack of tissue characterization. Read More
