Testicular Cancer Case Studies

A 21-year-old male noted pain in his right testicle while studying hard for his midterm college examinations. On self-examination, he noted a “grape sized” mass in the right testicle. Thisfinding was corroborated by his healthcare provider. This young man had a history of delayed descent of his right testicle until the age of 1 year old.

Studies

Results

Routine laboratory studies

Within normal limits (WNL)

Ultrasound the testicle

Solid mass, right testicle associated with calcifications

HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin)

550mIU/mL (normal: <5)

CT scan of the abdomen

Enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes

CT scan of the chest

Multiple pulmonary nodules

Diagnostic Analysis

At semester break, this young man underwent right orchiectomy. Pathology was compatible with embryonal cell carcinoma. CT directed biopsy of the most prominent pulmonary nodule indicated embryonal cell carcinoma, compatible with metastatic testicular carcinoma. During a leave of absence from college, and after banking his sperm, this young man underwent aggressive chemotherapy. Repeat testing 12 weeks after chemotherapy showed complete resolution of the pulmonary nodules and enlarged retroperitoneal lymph nodes.

Critical Thinking Questions

  1. What impact did an undescended testicle have on this young man’s risk for developingtesticular cancer?
  2. What might be the side effects of cytotoxic chemotherapy?
  3. What was the purpose of preserving his sperm before chemotherapy?
  4. Is this young man’s age typical for the development of testicular carcinoma?
