Paratesticular region is an obscure anatomical region that includes spermatic cord and its contents, tunica of the testes, epididymis and appendices of epididymis and testis. Paratesticular tumours may closely resemble and be clinically indistinguishable from testicular tumours, resulting in a diagnostic dilemma. Preoperative distinction between the benign and malignant paratesticular tumour is extremely difficult, resulting in difficulty in diagnosis and management. We hereby present a case of a 56-year-old male who reported with a painless bilateral scrotal mass and underwent surgical excision of the same. The final biopsy report was paratesticular leiomyoma. The main purpose of this manuscript is to emphasize on the fact that it is imperative for the treating urologists to be aware of such potentially benign rare entity. A high index of clinical suspicion is mandatory, as lack of knowledge about this condition would result in an unnecessary radical orchidectomy.
