Abstract

Although prostate cancer can metastasize to any part of the body, isolated testicular metastasis is very rare and only few cases have been reported so far. Here we present a case of 65-year-old male patient, known case of prostate adenocarcinoma, referred for 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT scan, post radiotherapy, and androgen deprivation therapy, for rising serum PSA levels. He was found to have an isolated testicular metastasis on the scan. This report highlights the importance of 68Ga-PSMA PET-CT scan in detecting these unusual and rare sites of metastasis from prostate cancer.
