We report a rare case of an ossified benign testicular metaplastic mass in a 52 years old man which was discovered incidentally during a consultation for a painless tumescent of left testis appearing two years ago. The 3,2×2,1×2 cm. predominantly solid mass was palpable with no extension to tunica albuginea and epididymis. The solid areas consisted of mature bone without any other pathological elements or any malignant tissue. The patient is alive and well 3 years after left orchioepididimectomy with spermatic cord resection.
