The male genital tract consists of a pair of testes, epididymis, vas deferens, ejaculatory duct, accessory sex glands (seminal vesicles, prostate, and bulbourethral glands) and the penis. Incidence of male genital cancer has increased rapidly over the period of time. Keeping in mind the varied histology and equal importance of male genital tract lesions, the present study was done to study the male genital tract lesions in our region.
Materials and Methods: The present study was carried out retrospectively in the department of pathology, GMC Jammu over a period of 1 year which included 96 cases. The data collected included age, sex, clinical history, diagnosis and histopathological findings.
Results: Our study included 96 cases out of which majority were of testis (36;37.5%) followed by prostate (25;26%), penis(18;18.7%), scrotum (13;13.6%) and epididymis (4;4.1%). Neoplastic lesions were 12(12.5%) and non neoplastic lesions were 84 (87.5%) in number. Among the neoplastic lesions adenocarcinoma prostate (7; 7.3%) was the most common and benign hyperplasia of prostate (18;18.7%) was common among the non neoplastic category.
Conclusion: Lesions of male genital tract form a relatively small but important part of pathological practice, so it is necessary to thoroughly investigate the patient for correct diagnosis and management of the patient.
