Expert groups of urologists and res often disagree on specifics, so for a less general answer i recommend getting a in-person evaluation with an expert you trust. ...Read more

Is it ever that a man with varicocele of the testicles still have children?

Is it ever that a man with varicocele of the testicles still have children?

Still possible.: A varicocele is a mass in the scrotum caused by defective valves in the testicular veins, which cause blood to pool, and the veins to expand. The pooling blood raises testicular temperature and affects testosterone and sperm production, which can affect fertility. Men can still have babies w/ this, but the odds are lower. Tx safely w/ varicocelectomy, ligation, or embolization. ...Read more
