Been 2 weeks since my microsur. Varicocele. And my left testicule and top veins are still swollen?

Red and painful?: Most worrisome is infection- if the swelling is new, red, painful, with discharge from the wound, call your surgeon. It can take 2 months for the varicocele to resolve because we don't remove the veins. The blood in the varicocele will eventually reroute to the large vessels in the thigh. ...Read more

Get an Ultrasound: Http://www. Ajandrology. Com/preprintarticle. Asp? Id=169985 : "peri-procedural pain for up to 10 days. While a few studies have reported a 3%-3.7% incidence of epididymitis with embolization and one group reported a 10% risk of hematoma, multiple studies have demonstrated 0% risk of developing chronic scrotal pain."

I already had a surgery for varicocele before? But I still have worm like veins in the bottom of my left testicle. Is it normal or is it still varicoc

I already had a surgery for varicocele before? But I still have worm like veins in the bottom of my left testicle. Is it normal or is it still varicoc

See answer: Surgery for a varicocele disrupts connection between the multiple dilated veins in the scrotum and the abnormal left gonadal vein which is the source of the problem. Depending how severe the varicocele, the prominent veins in the scrotum remain noticeable but gradually shrink with time. The other possibility is that a communicating vein was missed leading to persistence/recurrence of varicocele. ...Read more

Yes, you may, but...: You may masturbate now if you're comfortable.

Had ligation of varicocele for pain in my left testicle a month ago. Since then large veins have appeared on my penis that are painful. Why?

Varicoceles: Varicoceles occur in about 10 to 15 percent of the general population. These cluster of veins encircle the testes and cool them.

Can varicoceles vein in my testicle affecting my testosterone?

Can varicoceles vein in my testicle affecting my testosterone?

Not likely. . .: Varicoceles might affect sperm production by warming up testes but they won't affect testosterone production. If your pituitary isn't sending out enough lh, your t level might be low. Or if you've had trauma, injury (torsion) or infection (mumps orchitis) that damaged testes, your t level could then be lower than in past. Check w/your family doc to determine cause prior to starting therapy. ...Read more

17 is in the peak: Age for testis tumors. You need to be examined by a doctor, perhaps a urologist, and usually an ultrasound is the first step after exam. Hydrocoels and varicocoels can be distinguised clinically or with u/s. Epidydimitis is another prospect. If you cannot get help from mom or dad, go to an er, urgent care center, or look up a urologist to see if they will see you. I would. ...Read more

I been having pain in my scrotum and the veins are swollen and my right testicle is way smaller than the left one and it hurts all the time.?

Varicocele: Swollen veins inside the scrotum can be caused by a varicocele or varicose veins which can slow down the testicle circulation and thus produce pain because of lack of oxygen. Having the varicocele on the right side for a prolonged length of time not only causes atrophy or shrinkage of the testicle but also causes decreased sperm production. ...Read more

If happening just now, go get immediate medical attention. ...Read more

I have black vein on my left side of scrotum is it varicocele?

Varicocele: Varicoceles are tortuous veins around the testicle (mostly on the left side). They are deep inside the scrotum and not usually visible unless they are high grade (grade 3-4). If the vessel is on the surface skin of the scrotum, then that is not a varicocele. A simple physical exam and sometime ultrasound of the testicles can diagnose a varicocele. ...Read more

Varicocele (i think) on the left side. Age 19. No noticeable discomfort. Left testicular atrophy. Palpable veins do I need to worry? Risks?

Here are some. ..: After reaching adulthood, varicocelectomy wouldn't help much rescue varicocele-related testicular atrophy. In fact, some controversy regarding varicocelectomy for varicocele-related testicular atrophy still remains. Yet, in my practice, I still favor such procedure for adolescent varicocele with testicular atrophy, say, at age 15 - 18In. Of course, seek pro-evaluation and counseling timely. ...Read more
