According to the ultrasonography report as an extratesticular mass, he underwent trans-inguinal tumor resection surgery. A well-defined creamy-white ovoid mass with whorling cut surface which was tightened to the posterior of the cord was resected and then sent to pathology service where histologically the diagnosis of leiomyoma was made.
