Testicular masses in prepubescent children are typically benign. Most masses are mature teratomas, epidermoid cysts, and stromal tumors. Synchronous bilateral testicular masses in children are rare. The etiology of these includes synchronous primary testicular masses, lymphoma, leukemia, and adrenocortical rest hyperplasia. Partial orchiectomy, or testis-sparing surgery, is now preferred in the management of testicular masses deemed to be benign. We present a case of benign bilateral testicular masses managed with testis-sparing surgery. Six-month follow-up revealed no residual tumor, normal contour of the testes, and no evidence of atrophy.
