Paratesticular tumors are rare and account for 7% of intrascrotal neoplasms which generally present as painless inguinal or scrotal swelling. Around 200 cases of paratesticular liposarcoma cases have been reported worldwide. They are usually misdiagnosed before surgery. Incomplete treatment may lead to local recurrence. We report a rare case of paratesticular liposarcoma. A 65-year-old man presented with right scrotal painless swelling for 2 years and gradually increasing in size. On examination, swelling in the right inguinal scrotal region was cystic in consistency. Testicular tumor markers were normal. The patient underwent right high orchidectomy with tumor excision. Sample sent for biopsy. Histopathological study reveals paratesticular liposarcoma. The long-term survival is approximately 50% with a favorable prognosis.
