Abstract

Non-germ cell testicular tumours are reported to be more common in peoples of Negroid and Asian descent than in Caucasians. This group of tumours comprised seven of sixteen testicular tumours seen in a ten-year period at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, Benin City, Nigeria. However, unlike experiences elsewhere in Africa and the West Indies where paratesticular tumours accounted for a majority of these tumours, malignant lymphomas constituted over 70% of non-germinal testicular tumours in our population.
