Abstract
Background: Testicular tumor is the most general solid tumor of young men but only accountable for about 1% of all cancers in men. The peak incidence is between 15 and 34 years age group. Testicular tumors are divided into two categories: germ cell tumors and nongerm cell tumors. Germ cell tumors consist of about 95% of all testicular tumors.

Objective: To study the burden, incidence, and morphological and clinicopathological correlation of testicular tumors in Ajmer, Rajasthan, India.

Materials and Methods: This retrospective and prospective 16-year study was performed in Department of Pathology, Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, Ajmer, Rajasthan, India, from January 1999 to December 2014. The diagnosis was confirmed by histopathology with Hematoxylin and Eosin. Special stains and immunohistochemistry were done whenever needed.

Result: Of 115 cases of testicular tumors, the germ cell tumors [101 (87.82%) cases] were the commonest tumors. Highest incidence of testicular tumors was between 31 and 40 years age group (29.56%). Scrotal swelling was the commonest mode of presentation seen in 103 (89.56%) patients. Right-sided scrotal swelling [66 (57.39%) cases] was more common.

Conclusion: This study provides a description of the current trends in testicular tumors incidence and histopathological types.

Key words: Testicular tumors, germ cell tumors, scrotal swelling
