It has recently been emphasized that the incidence of benign testicular lesions is much higher than previously suspected. Sonography is reported to have a high sensitivity but poor specificity in the evaluation of intratesticular abnormalities. This report reviews the common and unusual lesions that can mimic testicular tumour on ultrasound, and discusses the clinical and sonographic features that may help to narrow the differential diagnosis and guide management.
