Manage varicose vein: Varicocele is most like a varicose vein, a dilated venous structure in the scrotal sac rather than in the leg. Compression is a management tool, but does not solve the problem. They are mostly benign, ie don't add risk to your health. If you have an associated inguinal hernia, then repair hernia and have varicocele resected at the same time.

No: Varicocele can be asymptomatic. Surgery is the only way to rid the problem should it become symptomatic.
