Özet

Testicular tumors are rarely seen in childhood, with germ-cell tumors as the most common type. Teratoma is second only to yolk sac tumor in frequency. Bilateral testicular teratoma is extremely rare. Orchiectomy has been the standard treatment for most tumors of the testes in the past. However, in children, testis-sparing surgery has become the treatment of choice for benign lesions including teratoma.
