Laparoscopic management of testicular tumour in undescended intra-abdominal testis with torsion

Testicular tumours occur more frequently in an undescended testis than in a normally developed testis. Moreover, they usually present as a palpable mass but occasionally they can present with pain as a result of torsion. We present the case of a 30-year-old male who was found to have a testicular tumour which had developed in an intra-abdominal testis and presented with pain as the main symptom. Based on clinical and radiological data, orchidectomy was then carried out laparoscopically. Laparoscopy is a very useful tool for accurate diagnosis and therapeutic surgery in such cases resulting in quicker recovery than after open surgery.
