Help is available: The usual place for spider veins is the legs. However, they can occur on the face. They can be removed either by laser, electric pencil or injections of a medication through a very small needle directly into the vein. All of these methods work but the least painful are the injections. Be sure it is done by a phlebologist (vein specialist) certified by the abvlm.

They get smaller: The only way that you could get atrophy of the testes from a surgical procedure is if the artery to the testicles is compromised. The testicular artery comes off of the artery to the kidneys, runs down to the groin behind the lining of the abdomen then descends through a canal into the scrotum and thence to the testicle. Both arteries would have to be injured to have both testicles atrophy.

It might: The procedure of pancreas removal is complicated and problems can develop at a later date. Egd is a good way to eliminate some of them and is relatively well tolerated.
