Abstract

Abstract: Malignant spermatic cord tumor is rare. Spermatic cord metastasis is less common and the prognosis of these patients is poor. Here we report a case of unilateral spermatic cord metastasis from advanced gastric cancer. A 57-year-old male underwent total gastrectomy due to advanced gastric cancer. Three years later, a painless hard palpable mass in the left inguinal area developed and the pathology revealed a spermatic cord metastasis from stomach cancer.
