8 malignant lymphoma were observed in 199 tumors of the testis. Bilateral testicular involvement, peak incidence in the sixth and seventh decades and extratesticular manifestation are typical distinguishing marks of these types of tumors. According to the staging of the malignant lymphomata the involvement of the testicle is an expression of generalized disease. After orchiectomy and diagnosis systemic therapy is therefore the condition for the improvement of the present poor prognosis. The special problems of malignant testicular lymphomata necessitate cooperation between oncologists from different specialities.
