Here are some ...: Varicocele occurs in 15-20% of men but in 35-40% of men evaluated for infertility. Most of them are asymptomatic, i.e., feeling nothing. If feeling something, that is some achy feeling & pressure after a long standing, but quickly relieved after lying flat for a while; so men with symptomatic varicocele feel dull ache / pain / pain in the afternoon, but feel relieved at waking up.
