We describe a case of the development of a testicular tumour in a patient with unilateral limited testicular microlithiasis after five years on a follow‐up surveillance program. We discuss the risk factors for the development of a testicular tumour, review the literature, and suggest a management strategy for follow‐up of patients with testicular microlithiasis.
