Bottom Line: Histological examination revealed a metastasis of the colon carcinoma within the spermatic cord and epididymis approaching the testicle.In general, testicular pain is rare in the elderly.We suggest that any elder presenting with testicular pain deserves a complete clinical and diagnostic evaluation.

ABSTRACT
We report a case of descending colon carcinoma metastasized to the left spermatic cord, testis, and epididymis. A 77-year old male patient underwent a left hemicolectomy for a descending colon cancer. He was referred to our department because of swelling and pain of the left scrotum two years and six months after surgery. High left orchiectomy was performed. Histological examination revealed a metastasis of the colon carcinoma within the spermatic cord and epididymis approaching the testicle. Reports on metastatic cancer of the testis are scarce, because this metastatic cancer is extremely rare. In general, testicular pain is rare in the elderly. We suggest that any elder presenting with testicular pain deserves a complete clinical and diagnostic evaluation.

Histological examination of the orchiectomy specimen showed metastatic adenocarcinoma within the spermatic cord (arrow) which also infiltrated the epididymis and approached the capsule of the left testis.
