17 Scopus citations


Ultrasonography is a readily accessible imaging modality. It is relatively inexpensive, is noninvasive, and requires no ionizing radiation or previous preparation. For these reasons, ultrasound is the examination of choice in the study of the scrotum and its contents. We present a review of the pathology of the scrotum and its contents. For that, we cite multiple sources of the current medical literature and illustrate them with cases performed at the University of California Davis Medical Center During the last 2.5 years. This article deals with testicular and extratesticular tumors. Within testicular tumors, we describe primary tumors, such as those of germ cell and stromal origin, and secondary tumors of the lymphoproliferative and nonlymphoproliferative (metastatic) types. The most common extratesticular tumors are discussed.
