Here are some...: The vein near incision should not connected with varicocele or hydrocele; both are way away from skin with no anatomical connection. So, the slight pain in incision may just represent lingering effect from wound healing process. Note: occasionally,varicocele or hydrocele may recur, most related how the surgery is done. More? Ask your surgeon timely.
