Abstract

Secondary scrotal tumors originating from viscera are rare and indicate a poor prognosis. We report a patient who underwent abdominoperineal resection due to his rectal cancer. Tumor recurrence at the surgical site led to prostate involvement. About 1 month after the prostatectomy, scrotal skin metastasis presented as bilateral papulonodular lesions. Finally, brain metastasis occurred and caused his death. Also, several ways by which malignancies can metastasize to scrotum have been discussed.
