See answer : Testicular microlithiasis not an uncommon incidental finding on ultrasound. Weak association with development of testicular cancer. No rx recommended: only regular self-exam for testicular mass. Varicoceles present in 15-20% of males. Occasional cause of infertility. Also, no rx needed if no fertility issues. Neither of the above problems is usually associated with pain. If bothersome, see urology.
