Adenomatoid tumour of the epididymis

Adenomatoid tumor is a benign mesothelial tumor, which arises from the lining of organs. It generally presents in the genital tract, in regions such as the testis[1] and epididymis.[2] It is the second most common extratesticular scrotal mass, after lipoma, and accounts for 30% of these masses.[3] It also has been found in the pancreas.[4]

In the female, it has been found in the body of the uterus and the fallopian tube.[5]
