78 Possible Causes for Testicular Calcifications

  • Germ Cell Tumor

    […] associated with multiple calcifications of the testicular parenchyma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Renshaw AA (1998) Testicular calcifications: incidence, histology and proposed pathological criteria for testicular microlithiasis. J Urol 160: 1625-1628.[omicsonline.org] Color Doppler imaging has a complementary role in the evaluation of testicular tumors.[sonoworld.com]

  • Orchitis

    To prevent delay in the diagnosis of testicular tumours in SCI patients, we propose the following measures: (1) patients who develop swelling of the testis should consult[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This inflammatory process then involves the rest of the epididymis or heals, often with calcifications.[wajradiology.org] […] follow-up scan was carried out 2 weeks later, which revealed a lobulated mass of mixed echogenicity within the testis and a focal area of increased echogenicity indicative of calcification[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Klinefelter Syndrome

    Abdominal magnetic resonance (MR) was performed in KS when testicular US showed micro-calcifications, testicular nodules and cysts.[ajandrology.com] MR ruled out the diagnosis of cancer in all KS with testicular micro calcifications, nodules and cysts.[ajandrology.com] Nearly 62% of the KS had regular testicular echotexture, 37.5% showed an irregular echotexture and 17.5% had micro-calcifications and cysts.[ajandrology.com]

  • Epididymitis

    ITE imaging may mimic testicular tumour since scrotal abscess, heterogenous lesions and extratesticular calcifications can be seen in both entities [ 10, 11 ].[oapublishinglondon.com] […] painless), enlarged scrotal veins ( varicocele ), calcifications, [13] and a possible cyst within the epididymis.[en.wikipedia.org] Intrascrotal extratesticular sites of calcification affect the epididymis and the tunica vaginalis testis.[ajronline.org]

  • Gynecomastia

    Their father had PJS but no history of gynecomastia or testicular calcifications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This report presents twins with PJS, bilateral prepubertal gynecomastia, and testicular multifocal calcifications. Both twins were treated with anastrozole for 2 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This report presents a pair of European 9-year-old identical male twins with Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, bilateral prepubertal gynecomastia, and testicular multifocal calcifications[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Malignant Neoplasm of the Testis

    Testicular calcifications: incidence, histology and proposed pathological criteria for testicular microlithiasis. J Urol 1998, 160: 1625 - 1628.[hellenicurology.com] The sonographic features of testicular neoplasms are varied. Pure seminomas are typically homogeneous hypoechoic masses without calcifications.[sonoworld.com] Tumor description 1 Site in testis/paratestis—central, inferior pole, superior pole, testicular hilum, epididymis, paratesticular soft tissue, spermatic cord, etc. 2 Tumor[nature.com]

  • Seminoma

    Intratubular germ cell neoplasia or morphologic features of a regressed testicular tumor (fibrosis/scar, necrosis, hyalinization, calcification, inflammation) were not found[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The sonographic features of testicular neoplasms are varied. Pure seminomas are typically homogeneous hypoechoic masses without calcifications.[sonoworld.com] The main differential for testicular mass in young adults is non-seminomatous germ cell tumor (NGCT) which usually appear more heterogeneous, often with cysts and calcification[radiopaedia.org]

  • Solid Ovarian Teratoma

    […] including teeth Location They are found in a variety of locations, including: ovary : see ovarian teratoma (also known as ovarian dermoid cyst ) testis : see testicular teratoma[radiopaedia.org] […] malignant transformation (most commonly squamous components). fat cystic spaces due to mucous production or other exocrine products soft-tissue from any part of the body calcification[radiopaedia.org]

  • Orchitis and Epididymitis

    […] shrapnel, testicular germ cell neoplasms with calcifications and testicular microlithiasis. [10] Radiography of the scrotum is used very rarely as a first-line imaging technique[ijri.org] […] painless), enlarged scrotal veins ( varicocele ), calcifications, [13] and a possible cyst within the epididymis.[en.wikipedia.org] , but it may be used to demonstrate calcification from old hematomas and tumors. [9] We have noticed that plain radiography is also useful in demonstrating the intrascrotal[ijri.org]

  • Acute Epididymitis

    […] painless), enlarged scrotal veins ( varicocele ), calcifications, [13] and a possible cyst within the epididymis.[en.wikipedia.org] Tests are needed to distinguish chronic epididymitis from a range of other disorders that can cause constant scrotal pain including testicular cancer (though this is often[en.wikipedia.org]
