A 29-year-old man was admitted in Urology Department of County Hospital of Constanta for left testicular increased size in last six months, without other symptoms. Testicular tumor was palpated and visualized by ultrasound. Computed tomography did not revealed metastatic lymph nodes. Beta-human chorionic gonadotropin and alpha-fetoprotein were within the normal range. We diagnosed the case as a left testicular tumor and performed high orchiectomy. Histological examination revealed typical seminoma. Subsequently, the patient was given two courses of systemic chemotherapy (bleomycin, etoposide, cisplatin) as an adjuvant therapy. The patient has remained free of disease six months after discharge.
