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

Are visible veins on scrotum supposed to be normal? When is it varicocele? I feel some strange feeling sometime on left, like tingle, no pain though.

I just got conventional surgery for varicocele 2 days ago. My only concern is, when I stand up, I can still feel hard veins in my scrotum. Please help?

Takes Time: Varicocele repair is performed by blocking (tying or clipping) the ven(s) that lead from the abdomen (retroperitoneum) into the scrotum. Initially this will lead to those veins seeming fuller. Over the next few weeks to months the veins will shrink down. What you should notice now is that the veins do not distend further when you stand up or hold your breath (valsalva). ...Read more
