  • Epidermoid cysts, mesothelial cysts, cysts of tunica albuginea, rete testis, efferent ducts or testicular parenchyma have been described
  • These cysts are benign; epithelium is cuboidal to columnar, variable cilia
  • Tunica albuginea cysts are probably of mesothelial origin (Arch Pathol Lab Med 1989;113:902)
