Varicocele

Embolization
Costs varies from hospital to hospital and from doctor to doctor. It is an effective way to treat varicocele but I do not believe there any studies comparing results and outcomes.

Varicocele surgery, what can I expect?

Always ask surgeon

Varicocele
It's a surgeons responsibility to describe the any procedure or operation beforehand also all benefits & risks. Wonder why UR having this surgery at age 49, this is unusual. Too late to affect fertility & varicoceles usually don't cause much discomfort. Surgery can be done via laparoscope (my preference), open microsurgery at neck of scrotum or open abdominally through a hernia type incision.

After spermatic vein ligation (Varicocele surgery) it is common for the veins to remain enlarged for weeks until collateral venous drainage routes enlarge. If the scrotal approach (instead of inguinal) it is also possible that only some branches of the spermatic vein were ligated, leaving some still dilated.

Can a varicocele be cured without surgery?

Yes and no

Varicocele
A varicocele cannot be corrected without some sort of procedure. It can be done via interventional radiology by embolizing the varicocele angiographically. More commonly, it is ligated surgically via one of a number of techniques (laparoscopic, robotic, inguinal, subinguinal). The various benefits of each approach should be discussed with your physician.

Dr. Matthew Thom answered:

Varicocele can be treated without surgery?

No

Varicocele
Not all varicoceles need to be treated. Reasons to fix a varicocele would be symptoms (pain), infertility (common finding with infertile men), and adolescents with testicle atrophy. Treatment options include open surgical repair including microsurgical approach, laparoscopic varicocelectomy or percutaneous embolization typically performed by a radiologist.
