Abstract

We report a case of testicular metastasis from a colonic adenocarcinoma. The presentation of testicular metastasis, diagnosis, management, and possible modes of spread are reported. In addition to conventional investigations and histopathologic techniques, a molecular study of the testicular metastasis and colon primary, using microsatellite analysis, was performed to confirm the primary origin. Its potential uses are discussed.
