Epidemiology and clinical characteristics of testicular tumors in saudi arabia king faisal specialist hospital and research center experience
The data on 62 patients with germinal testicular tumors seen at King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre between January 1977 and June 1983 were analyzed to determine the epidemiologic and clinical characteristics of the disease in Saudi Arabia. Fifty-seven patients were Saudis. The geographic distribution of Saudi patients seemed to coincide with population concentrations. Testicular seminomas (TS) and non-seminomatous testicular tumors (NSTT) comprised 50% each. The mean age was 41 and 27.8 years for TS and NSTT, respectively. Fifteen patients had cryptorchidism of the involved testicle. Three patients with NSTT had a history of trauma to the involved testicle. The most common presentations were painless testicular swelling (51.6%), painful swelling (16%), and abdominal or inguinal swelling (21%). The delay between the onset of symptoms and referral (mean 15 months) was considerable. Eighty percent of patients with NSTT and 45% of those with TS had advanced disease at referral.
