We treated 15 patients with all sonographic criteria of a simple testicular cyst. Of the patients 6 were operated on and the diagnosis was confirmed histologically, while 9 did not undergo an operation but are under close observation (mean surveillance 11 months). All patients are without any detectable malignancy. The possibility of a surveillance strategy in simple intratesticular cysts is discussed.
