Overview

Testicular cancer is a very rare type of cancer. Based on the histopathological features, testicular cancer may be classified into six subtypes: germ cell tumors, sex-cord stromal tumors, tumors containing both germ cell and sex-cord stromal elements, miscellaneous tumors of the testis, hematolymphoid tumors, and tumors of collecting duct and rete testis.

Classification

WHO Classification of testicular Tumors

WHO classifies testicular tumors as follows:[1][2]

Testicular Cancer
Germ cell tumors Sex-cord stromal tumors Miscellaneous tumors of the testis Hematolymphoid tumors Tumors of collecting duct and rete testis Tumors containing both germ cell and sex-cord stromal elements
Germ cell tumors derived from germ cell neoplasia in situ:

Germ cell tumors unrelated to germ cell neoplasia in situ:

Ovarian epithelial-type tumors

Juvenile Xanthogranuloma

Hemangioma
