Primary testicular lymphomas, which account for 5% of all testicular neoplasms, occur predominantly in men older than 50 years. The most common clinical presentation is a unilateral testicular mass. Bilateral involvement at initial presentation is rare except for lymphoblastic lymphoma. Orchiectomy and chemotherapy is the preferred treatment. A 50-year-old male presented with right scrotal swelling, clinically diagnosed as testicular tumor and CT scan revealed bilateral adrenal masses. High orchidectomy was performed. Histopathology reported a testicular lymphoma, and the patient was subjected to chemotherapy.
