Some men have a plexus of thickened / distended veins usually along the left spermatic cord. If it's new, it warns of possible obstruction of a renal vein perhaps by tumor; if it's a nuisance, it can be removed. Good luck.

Dr. Gabriel Goren answered:

How is enlarged testicular veins treated?

The condition

Veins
is called varicocelle. It can lower the sperm count. If it is mild, a simple support is sufficient mainly during physical activity. The veins can be ligated surgically as an open procedure, can be ligated by laparoscopy and can closed, embolized. This usually is done by an interventional radiologist. I would however suggest go see a urologist. Have a complete examination by him!

Husband has low count, 23 yo. Has enlarged left testicular veins. How do we go about getting checked for variocele? And variocele surgery?

Urology and US

Surgery
Getting an exam of his scrotum and testicles, that may include a diagnostic scrotal Ultra Sound would be the first step, then your husband and the Urologist would discuss treatment options that may include a possible surgery if need be, etc. Best wishes.

Does testicular veins swell and tender to touch if a person have STD, UTI or Prostatitis?

No

Std
Most common cause for enlarged testicular veins is a left sided varicocele. Feels like a "bag of worms" if subject is standing. STDs or UTIs can cause epididymitis causing scrotal swelling and tenderness of testes & epididymis in region of testicular veins. Prostatitis causes a very tender prostate but does not affect testicular veins.

Why my testicular veins swells and hurts when touched while and after urination? What is the cause?

Possible reflux

Veins
Urine refluxing into ejaculatory or prostatic ducts could account for these symptoms. Could be evaluated by means of a voiding cysto-urethrogram. X-ray study in which bladder is filled with contrast dye, via a catheter & you then urinate whilst the radiologist monitors you fluoroscopically (On a TV type screen)

Dr. Paul J. Turek answered:

Does Inguinal (groin) hernia causes testicular vein dilation or pain & swelling in testicular veins?

It could.

Groin
A large enough inguinal hernia can certainly cause testicular pain and can can cause scrotal swelling. I imagine it might also compress or push on the pampiniform veins and exacerbate a clinical varicocele. This complex of symptoms certainly merits medical evaluation.

Squishy lump on bottom of testicle. It feels like it's full of veins, and I never notice it there before. Is this a testicular lump?

It is best to see MD

Testicles
there are several things that can be there and one is called varicocele, another is spermatocele. Have it examined by the doctor, I can assure it will give better peace of mind.
