A 17-year-old male asked:
Ultrasound on testicles, and came back with very small varicocele, but i do have some heavy like soreness in the testicles.. does this mean surgery?

Not necessarily : Surgery is usually a last resort for varicocele, in an attempt to improve fertility or relieve more severe symptoms. A consultation with a urologist would give you a more complete evaluation. Hope this helps!
