Scrotal symptoms including palpable mass or pain often bring men to medical attention. Ultrasound serves as an extension of the physical examination in these patients and, in most cases, allows definitive diagnosis. Although the diagnosis of malignancy is of greatest concern both to the patient and clinician, a number of benign scrotal pathologies exist and most have characteristic imaging features. Knowledge of these imaging findings can help the radiologist to confidently identify common benign scrotal conditions. Location and imaging characteristics of uncommon lesions help to establish a rational differential diagnosis and appropriate recommendations for patient management.

ABSTRACT: A 30-day-old neonate was brought to our hospital due to testicular neoplasm in the right scrotum. Scrotal ultrasonography revealed a mixed cystic and solid mass in the testis. Analysis of testicular tumor markers was negative. Scrotal exploration was performed. A red nodular tumor was removed from the testis by surgery. Histological examination of the specimen showed it to be hemangiolymphangioma (HLA).
