Abstract: Testicular cancer, constituting 1 - 1.5 of male neoplasms, predominantly manifests as germ cell tumors GCT, with seminomas typically occurring in the fourth decade of life and non - seminomatous germ cell tumors NSGCT in the third. This case report describes a 22 - year - old male presenting with a left scrotal swelling of seven months duration. Clinical and radiological evaluations indicated a significant mass in the left testis. Surgical intervention via left inguinal approach was performed, leading to a diagnosis of mixed germ cell tumor comprising embryonal carcinoma, teratoma, and yolk sac tumor components. Post - operative biochemical markers showed a marked reduction, confirming the effective removal of tumor tissue. The patient is currently under surveillance and is recovering well.
