The most common testicular tumors among young men of reproductive age are Germ Cell Tumors (GCTs). Luckily, these tumors are very treatable with high survival rates. However, some of the long term consequences on survivors such as sterility and hypogonadism do not garner as much attention, given that the majority of tumors are unilateral. In the rare cases of bilateral testicular tumors, treatment consequences have more profound effect on quality of life and should garner serious consideration in devising a treatment strategy for these patients. Here, we report a case of bilateral synchronous seminoma found in a patient managed with a fertility-sparing surgical treatment strategy.
