Three children, ages 1, 6, and 24 months, had testicular tumors; two had enlarging hydroceles. Although testicular tumors are less common in children than adults, early detection depends on a high degree of suspicion and early surgery for any enlarging inguinal or scrotal mass. Approximately two thirds of childhood testicular tumors are of germ cell origin. Accurate histologic diagnosis is necessary to determine therapy and prognosis. Childhood testicular teratoma is usually a benign lesion… 
Testicular neoplasms in children.
TLDR
It is suggested that orchiectomy alone is curative in most children with testicular tumors under the age of two years.
"Red herrings," adolescents, and testicular tumors.
  • P. Tellier, A. Hofmann, L. Cohen
  • Medicine
    Journal of adolescent health care : official publication of the Society for Adolescent Medicine
  • 1983
TLDR
In this case report of an adolescent male with embryonal cell carcinoma of the right testis, a premorbid history of psychological problems, and immature, complaining behavior led to an improper assessment of the significant clues in the patient's oral history and a delay in diagnosis.
Management of primary testicular tumors in children.
TLDR
Between 1966 and 1977, 16 primary testicular tumors (PTT) were treated at the Social Security Children's Hospital in Barcelona, and 81.3% of the 16 patients with 13 malignant and 3 benign tumors are alive.
Testicular tumors in prepubertal children.
TLDR
A clinical analysis was made of prepubertal children with testis tumors, and the most common of these tumors was the yolk sac carcinoma, which is a benign, nonmetastasizing disease in children and requires only orchiectomy.
Prepubertal testicular tumors
  • G. Kaplan
  • Medicine
    World Journal of Urology
  • 2004
TLDR
A pre-pubertal testicular tumor registry established by the Section on Urology of the American Academy of Pediatrics has provided preliminary data on over 160 boys with testicular tumors, 2/3 of which are yolk sac tumors, which are the commonest histologic types seen.
A boy with Leydig cell tumour and precocious puberty: Ultrasonography as a diagnostic aid
TLDR
It appears that ultrasonography may be very useful in diagnosing a testicular tumour and facilitates surgical intervention since it permits localization of the lesion which is usually very small and limited to a small part of the testis, as in this case.
The management of testicular epidermoid cysts and other benign intra-tunica albuginea testicular tumours with particular reference to scrotal ultrasound studies.
  • R. Brown
  • Medicine
    The Australian and New Zealand journal of surgery
  • 1984
TLDR
Testicular ultrasound studies are not sufficiently accurate to establish a pre-operative diagnosis of a benign intra-tunica albuginea tumour but may assist in the diagnosis of inflammation, unequal uniform testicular size or where the anatomy has been altered by previous surgery or trauma.
The spectrum of Sertoli cell tumors in children.
TLDR
The spectrum of Sertoli cell tumors in children covers a wide range of testis and ovarian tumors classified as sex cord-stromal tumors, with a primitive cellular origin to these tumors likely in males and females.
Benign testis tumors.
TLDR
4 illustrative cases and a practical categorization of the varied pathologic events causing Benign testis tumors are presented.
The diagnosis of Leydig cell tumors in childhood.
TLDR
Differences in the hormonal profile at the initial evaluation indicate that a dexamethasone suppression test may be required to differentiate between Leydig cell tumors and congenital virilizing adrenal hyperplasia with adrenal rest tissue located within the testes.

TLDR
From a review of the literature and the experience gained from this case, it is recommended that the criteria for node dissection in an adult be applied in infants and children.
Tumors of the testis: II. Tumors of the testis in children
TLDR
It is believed that a basic histologic similarity exists between certain testicular tumors occuring in children and in adults and certain ovarian tumors, notwithstanding some distinctive patterns of an adenocarcinomatous nature, which have earned these new growths a pleurality of nomenclature.

TLDR
The clinical anti roentgen manifestations of 42 cases of teratoma have been reviewed and the importance of early diagnosis is stressed because of the potential for malignant change and the compromise of vital structures by compression or invasion.

TLDR
Seven patients with far advanced rhabdomyosarcoma treated with combination chemotherapy consisting of vincristine, dactinomycin, and cyclophosphamide indicate that this combination of agents may be a valuable adjunct to surgery and/or radiotherapy in treating localized or regional disease.
