Answer

The presence of a varicocele and findings of paraneoplastic syndromes should raise clinical suspicion for this diagnosis. In addition, look for hypertension, supraclavicular adenopathy, and a flank or abdominal mass with bruit. However, gross hematuria with vermiform clots suggests upper urinary tract bleeding.
