The seminal vesicles are paired organs that have a posterior location to the bladder and prostate. A seminal vesicle has a capacity for around 4 ml, and has a length of 5-7 cm. The secretions of seminal vesicles make up 80% of seminal fluid. Primary tumors of the seminal vesicles are very rare and could be benign or malignant and Benign tumors, such as cystadenomas are rarer than malignant ones. They are usually present in second and third decades of life. High-resolution trans-rectal ultrasonography (TRUS) guided biopsy can be useful for assisting the diagnosis. CT scan and MRI are more performing techniques to characterize the lesion of the seminal vesicle. Because of the rarity of these tumors, there is no defined treatment for their management. We report the case of an 80 years old patient, with a giant cystadenoma of the seminal vesicle, along with a review of the literature
