Keywords:Histopathology , Testicular and Paratesticular lesions , Non specific Epididymoorchitis , Seminoma
Aim: To evaluate the histopathology of testicular and para-testicular lesions presenting in a tertiary care centre.
Material & Method: This is a retrospective study of tissues obtained from lesions involving testicular and para-testicular region, conducted at B.J. Medical College and Civil Hospital , Ahmedabad, Gujarat from period of May 2016 to May 2019. The tissue samples obtained were grossed , processed and reported. Patients case sheets were studied and analyzed for data.
Result: The present study was done from May 2016 to May 2019 . Total 167 cases were studied at Pathology Department , B.J.Medical College & Civil Hospital , Ahmedabad , Gujarat which is a Premier Tertiary Care Hospital. Neoplastic lesions were found in 19 cases whereas Non-neoplastic lesions were seen in 148 cases. Among 148 Non-neoplastic lesions 109 cases are testicular and 39 cases were Para-testicular lesions. Among 19 Neoplastic lesions , 4 were benignand 14 were malignant.
