Liposarcoma in the spermatic cord is a rare condition with an incidence of 1 per 2.5 million. The condition can present as paratesticular pain and a quick diagnosis is important in order to ensure proper treatment and to improve the prognosis. We describe a case of a 69-year-old man who suffered from long-lasting swelling in the inguinal area and experienced increasing pain through a period of 2 weeks. Due to increasing pain and fast growing swelling, an exploration of the inguinal area was performed and peroperatively a tumour in the spermatic cord was found. Subsequent histological examination revealed a de-differentiated liposarcoma.
