Surgery embolization: Embolization means "clot making." the doctor injects coils into the testicular veins to block them. Sometimes a fluid is used. Laproscopic surgery & open surgery remove the veins. You & your doctor should discuss best treatment option in your case. See http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/varicocele/ds00618/dsection=treatments-and-drugs.
