DOI : 10.5146/jcpath.2018.33 Aim: Testicular tumors are rare and most commonly occur in males between the ages of 15- 40, with approximately 1-3% of malignant tumors in males. Germ cell tumors are the most common and most important tumors. They usually present with unilateral and painless swelling.

Materials and Methods: The cases constituted 114 testicular tumors diagnosed between 2011-2017 at Baskent Universty Faculty of Medicine, Department of Pathology. The cases were evaluated in terms of age, pathologic stage, tumor size, localization, clinical stage, treatment modalities and survival rates.

Results: Age of 114 patients with tumor diagnosis ranged from 3 months to 69 years. The largest diameter of the tumor is 0.8-9 cm. Sixty-three (55.3%) of the cases were at right and fifty-one (44.7%) were left testis. The most common is mixed germ cell tumor and then seminoma. Follow-up times range from 4 to 81 months. In terms of stage and survey, pT1 is 94%, pT2 89% and pT3 80%. Surveillance decreases with increasing stage.

Conclusion: The results were compared in the light of the literature and it was determined that the findings were consistent with the literature. Anahtar Kelimeler : Testis, Germ cell tumor, Non-germ cell tumor
