Abstract

We report the case of a 61-year-old patient, operated on for adenocarcinoma of the esophagus in 2002, who presented in 2007 with a hydrocele and palpable mass of the right testis. Operative exploration and orchiectomy were performed. Histopathology revealed a testicular and epididymidal metastasis from the esophageal adenocarcinoma. Only a few testicular metastases have been reported from gastrointestinal cancers. No case of testicular metastasis from esophageal cancer, including Barrett's carcinoma has been reported. In most cases, the testicular tumor was accompanied by a hydrocele. Therefore, cancerous and metastatic lesions should be considered in the management of hydrocele and testicular masses.
