This case report describes a 67-year-old man with testicular lymphoma. The typical symptom in patients when first seen with testicular lymphoma is a painless enlargement of the testicle. However, this patient had a long history of progressively worsening weakness in his right arm and leg, as well as a sudden onset of chest pain and dyspnea. Upon initial examination of this patient, a large mass was discovered in the scrotal and inguinal region on the right side. The patient subsequently underwent a right radical orchiectomy. When the diagnosis of lymphoma was confirmed, a proper chemotherapy regimen was initiated. This case report reviews the case, diagnosis, and management of testicular lymphoma.
