Abstract

NAVARRO BALDELLOT, Ana Laura; PENA OLIVERA, Roine A.  and  SANCHEZ SANCHEZ, Samuel. Mixed Testicular Seminoma. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2021, vol.37, n.3, e1776.  Epub Sep 01, 2021. ISSN 0864-2125.

Introduction:

Testicular cancer is a rare neoplasm, despite being the most frequent solid tumor in men aged 15-35 years.

Objective:

To describe the case of a patient who received attention at the General Hospital of Cienfuegos.

Clinical case:

This is the case of a 21-year-old man without risk factors who presents with a scrotal mass, gynecomastia and adenopathies. The complementary texts showed a classic seminoma with anaplastic areas and notable spread, which allowed to classify it as a stage-III neoplasm.

Conclusions:

Mortality from testicular cancer is largely preventable. The physical examination is the cornerstone of early diagnosis. It is essential to bear in mind its diagnostic possibility, particularly in young adults. Despite the decrease in mortality from this disease, late diagnosis or in advanced stages, as in this case, hides prognosis.

Keywords : seminoma; testicular neoplasm; germ cells.
