Forty cases of testicular malignancy were selected for FNAC study in the Dept. of Pathology, Medical College, Calcutta since March 1990 to June 2000. This comprised only 31% of the total testicular lesions (129), which also included benign tumors and non-neoplastic conditions. Of all malignant tumors, seminoma was most common (82%), occurring mostly in the 4th decade of life. Apart from seminoma, embryonal carcinoma (12%), teratoma (3%) and lymphoma (3%) were observed in the descending order of frequency. Out of 40 cases, 34 were confirmed by histopathological exmination. Amongst these 34 cases, 5 (14.7%) were associated with cryptorchidism.
