Lung cancer is among the most common cancers which continue to be a major cause of death in the world and many present with distant metastasis in advanced stages precluding curative treatment. Herein, we report a 62-year-old male patient admitted to our hospital with complaint of a painful mass in his left inguinal region. Surprisingly, a chest radiograph revealed a mass in his left lung with ipsilateral pleural effusion. Thorough radiological and pathologic examinations he was confirmed to have a non-small cell lung cancer with only spermatic cord metastasis and unfortunately the patient died two weeks after admission.
