The patient is a 16 year old male with a right testicular mass. His past medical history is significant for previous left orchiectomy at the age of 8, thyroidectomy at the age of 11, and removal of numerous skin lesions.
The specimen consists of a testicle, 39.0 grams, and attached 8.0 cm of spermatic cord. The testicular dimensions are 6.0 x 3.5 x 2.0 cm. The tunica and epididymis are unremarkable. The cut surface of the testicle demonstrates golden-pink parenchyma with several scattered firm, white-tan nodules, which vary in size from 0.1 to 0.7 cm in diameter (Figures 1, 2 and 3).
