Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers in the developed countries, and colon cancer is well documented. However, it is very rare for a primary colon cancer to exist in a scrotal hernia, and even rarer for the scrotal hernia to perforate. Here, we describe an unusual case where a 75-year-old patient with a colon tumor that perforated in a scrotal hernia. The teaching point is to highlight the computed tomography scan imaging characteristics of this rare finding in patients with both abdominal and scrotal pain.
