Testicular microlithiasis is a radiologic imaging finding often detected by a scrotal ultrasound. In general it does not present with a clinical sign or a symptom. It can be detected in a healthy testis and it can also accompany a testicular germ cell tumor (GCTs). However it is not considered as a risk factor for germ cell tumor. Although not a risk factor for germ cell tumor it may cause anxiety for both patients and physicians. In this manuscript we aim to review diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of testicular microlithiasis through current literature.

Keywords: Testicular microlithiasis, testicular tumor, follow up
