In stage IIIA, the cancer is anywhere within the testicle, spermatic cord, or scrotum; may have spread to one or more lymph nodes in the abdomen; and has spread to distant lymph nodes or to the lungs.
In stage IIIC, the cancer is anywhere within the testicle, spermatic cord, or scrotum; and may have spread to one or more nearby or distant lymph nodes or to the lungs or anywhere else in the body.

 Spermatic cord - Information from Reference.com
The spermatic cord is the name given to the cord-like structure in males formed by the vas deferens and surrounding tissue that run from the abdomen down to each testicle.
The spermatic cord is sensitive to torsion, in which the testicle rotates within its sac and kinks off its own blood supply.
The contents of the abdominal cavity may protrude into the spermatic cord, producing an indirect inguinal hernia.

In adults, approximately 10% of spermatic cord sarcomas are LMS with a peak incidence in the sixth and seventh decades [4].
Preoperative diagnosis of spermatic cord LMS is difficult and the tumour is usually described as a firm, gradually enlarging, and painless extra-testicular intra-scrotal mass [16].
Adjuvant chemotherapy is currently not used routinely in the management of spermatic cord LMS though it has been suggested that it might have a role in abrogating the haematogenous metastatic potential in high grade sarcomas [12] and in patients with metastatic disease.

 Testicular torsion Summary
Testicular torsion is a disorder of the testicles caused by the twisting of the spermatic cord.
While torsion may correct itself, surgery is usually needed to unravel the twisted spermatic cord and attach the affected testicle to the inside scrotal wall to prevent recurrence.
If the spermatic cord is twisted while the scrotum is loose, the sudden contraction that results from the abrupt temperature change can trap the testicle in that position.

 eMedicine - Testicular Torsion : Article Excerpt by: Eugene Minevich, MD
Torsion of the testis, or more correctly, torsion of the spermatic cord, is a surgical emergency because it causes strangulation of gonadal blood supply with subsequent testicular necrosis and atrophy.
Extravaginal torsion: This type manifests in the neonatal period and most commonly develops prenatally in the spermatic cord, proximal to the attachments of the tunica vaginalis.
Contraction of the spermatic muscles shortens the spermatic cord and may initiate testicular torsion.

 Varicocele Repair
However, spermatic veins tend to form branches upon exiting the inguinal canal, thus in performing a subinguinal varicocele ligation one must be more meticulous in identifying and ligating branches.
Incision about 3 cm in length is made at the level of external inguinal ring, the spermatic cord adjacent to the external ring is dissected, a penrose drain is placed under the cord.
Further dissection of the spermatic cord at the external ring is performed to identify any other spermatic and cremasteric veins for ligation.

Background: Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) is a common sarcoma of the soft tissue but it rarely occurs in the spermatic cord.
Conclusions: Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) is a common sarcoma of the soft tissue in late adult life and is usually found in the region of the extremities and retroperitoneum.
The pre-operative clinical diagnosis of spermatic cord tumor is difficult and is usually confused with inguinal hernia, spermatocele, epididymo-orchitis and testicular tumor.

Torsion of the spermatic cord continues to be one of the few emergencies in urologic practice.
Success in the management of spermatic cord torsion is measured by immediate testicular salvage and incidence of late testicular atrophy, which are, in turn, directly related to the duration and degree of testicular torsion.
