Testicular Teratocarcinoma

Testicular Embryonal Carcinoma and Teratoma


  • Abstract A case report of father-son testicular cancers, both teratocarcinomas, is presented and genetic considerations discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The incidence of this disease is increasing—the lifetime risk for a man is now about one in 200 in the United Kingdom. 1 Presentation is usually with a painless lump.[bmj.com]
  • However, it is present as a component of almost ninety percent of mixed nonseminomatous germ cell tumours. The average age at diagnosis is 31 years, and typically presents as a testicular lump which may be painful.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • A 50-year-old male presented to us in August 2004 with a history of left-sided testicular swelling.[indianjurol.com]

  • Whole-body CT scan showed multiple bilateral lung nodules, systemic lymphadenopathies and a mass over the left testis. Biopsies from an enlarged supraclavicular lymph node revealed metastatic testicular teratocarcinoma.[bjid.org.br]
  • Chest X-ray was normal and ultrasonography of the abdomen revealed para-aortic lymphadenopathy. He underwent a left high inguinal orchidectomy and left hemiscrotectomy.[indianjurol.com]
Upper Abdominal Pain
  • Case report A 22-year-old male patient complaining of right-sided upper abdominal pain.[link.springer.com]

Neck Mass
  • In 2005 a huge left supraclavicular neck mass with extension to anterior mediastinum appeared. Radical surgical resection of the mass was performed and pathologic examination revealed mature teratoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Testicular Mass
  • Case : The patient was a 29-year-old male with a right testicular mass, measuring 8.5 7.5 8.0 cm in diameter.[jstage.jst.go.jp]
  • At a Glance When a patient discovers a usually painless testicular mass, either unintentionally or by self-examination, or when a testicular mass is discovered by routine physical examination, testicular cancer should be suspected.[clinicaladvisor.com]
  • One fifth to two thirds of patients with tumours composed predominantly of embryonal carcinoma have metastases at diagnosis. [1] Signs and symptoms [ edit ] The presenting features may be a palpable testicular mass or asymmetric testicular enlargement[en.wikipedia.org]
  • The most common presentation of pure teratomas is with a painless testicular mass.[radiopaedia.org]


  • Metastatic Workup After the diagnosis is confirmed by radical inguinal orchiectomy, further studies should include repeated markers for hCG (wait 1 week) and AFP (wait 4 weeks) and CT of the chest and abdomen.[flylib.com]
Left Pleural Effusion
  • Chest x-ray documented left pleural effusion. Cultures from thoracentesis grew out Acremonium strictum and intravenous liposomal amphotericin B was given at a dose of 200 mg daily. On treatment, fever subsided but dyspnea worsened.[bjid.org.br]


  • We report a case of cervical mature teratoma appeared 17 years after treatment of testicular teratocarcinoma. A 20-year-old patient underwent left sided orchiectomy followed by systemic therapy and retroperitoneal residual mass resection in 1989.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Randomized comparisons of radiotherapy and nitrosoureas for the treatment of malignant glioma after surgery. ‎[books.google.es]
  • On treatment, fever subsided but dyspnea worsened. Whole-body CT scan showed multiple bilateral lung nodules, systemic lymphadenopathies and a mass over the left testis.[bjid.org.br]

  • […] represent the principal predisposing factors. 2 As for the respiratory system, Acremonium strictum has been associated with two types of lesions: multiple bilateral nodules with no halo sign (4 cases) and pleuritis (2 cases including ours). 1–5 The prognosis[bjid.org.br]

  • Germ cell tumors (germinoma, 90643; germ cell tumor, nonseminomatous, 90653) Seminoma (90613, 90623, 90663; most common 40-50%; slow to spread; more likely to occur in older patients; highly radiosensitive; good prognosis) Non-Seminoma (teratoma and embryonal[training.seer.cancer.gov]
  • Prognosis of Testicular Cancer (Teratoma of the Testicle) As with many malignancies, early diagnosis and intervention are critical to subsequent prognosis in patients with testicular cancer.[myvmc.com]
  • Adjusting for these and other factors, survival was 60% higher for men treated in a cancer unit that treated the majority of these men, though the unit treated more men with the worst prognosis. [12] Choriocarcinoma of the testicles has the worst prognosis[en.wikipedia.org]

  • No clear etiologic or genetic factors have been defined; however, 10% of patients have a history of an undescended testis, 50% of which were intraabdominal. Testis cancers will be bilateral in 2% to 3% of cases, either concurrent or in succession.[flylib.com]
  • While the clinical evidence for the involvement of genetic factors in the etiology of GCT is undisputed, the assumed Testicular GCT 1 gene has so far not been identified [ 41 ].[bmcurol.biomedcentral.com]
