A follow up to the Image case-About testicular microlithiasis
Testicular microlithiasis: a review and its association with testicular cancer.
Rashid HH, Cos LR, Weinberg E, Messing EM
Testicular microlithiasis (TM) is an entity of unknown etiology that results in the formation of intratubular calcifications. It is of concern to the urologist because of its possible association with intratubular germ cell neoplasia and testicular germ cell cancer. Although commonly present in patients with germ cell tumors, there appears to be no definitive association with TM and cancer. Therefore, follow-up at this time should be dictated based on risk factors for developing testis cancer more than on the presence of TM.
