Abstract

The cause of testicular cancer remains controversial and thought to be multifactorial. However, more recent data show that carcinogenic potential of altered testicular environment might induce cancer and that early surgical correction might decrease the chance of cancer development. We report a case of a 20-month-old boy who underwent radical orchiectomy because of testicular cancer detected 9 months after orchiopexy of undescended testis.
