ABSTRACT


Metastatic testicular neoplasm is rare and carries poor prognosis compared to primary germ cell tumours. Colorectal cancers usually metastasize to the liver, lungs, skeletal system, brain and adrenals, whereas only 8% of all metastatic testicular lesions are from colorectal cancer origin. Several histopathological features and mechanisms of metastasis to the testicles have been stated in the literature.
