Carcinoma prostate secondary metastasis to testicle and epididymis is rare. We report a case of metastatic carcinoma prostate in which testicular and epididymal metastasis were diagnosed incidentally in bilateral orchiectomy specimen. Testicular and para testicular structure should be properly evaluated for accurate staging of carcinoma prostate. Epididymis should always be included in bilateral orchidectomy specimen.
