Adenocarcinoma of the prostate is one of the common cancers among elderly men worldwide. However, testicular metastasis detected incidentally after orchiectomy is a rare presentation as most commonly we encounter patients presenting with bone metastasis at the time of primary diagnosis. Here, we describe a recently diagnosed case of prostatic carcinoma that had metastasis in a single testis, incidentally detected in the orchiectomy histopathological specimen, performed for surgical castration and emphasize the importance of routine microscopical examination of the testicular specimens.
