Ultrasound examination showed multiple heterogeneous lobulated low echogenicity lesions replacing the testicular parenchyma, 17mm to 23mm highly suggestive of testicular neoplasm. Serum AFP, hCG and LDH were normal. CT scan of the chest, abdomen and pelvis was normal. The patient underwent radical orchidectomy.
