Is a contralateral testicular biopsy in patients with unilateral germ cell testicular cancer indicated as a routine procedure?


, : Is a contralateral testicular biopsy in patients with unilateral germ cell testicular cancer indicated as a routine procedure?. Acta Oncologica 44(6): 523-525

We report on a case of a 54-year-old man who was admitted to hospital with diffuse muscular pain and recurrent vomiting. Diagnosis of an adenocarcinoma of the esophagus was established by endosonography-guided biopsy. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed multiple nodular lesions within the skeletal musculature; CT-guided biopsy proved the metastatic origin of the primary tumor site.
