Enlarged Testicular Veins (Definition)

This occurs in 15% of the adult population and is not typically visible until after puberty. It is almost always on the left side, and if seen on the right additional evaluation needs to be performed. It is more common in men with infertility and if treated ...Read more

I have varicocele.. What should I do so that it will not lead to infertility?

See answer: Most men with varicocele will be fertile. Some infertile men with varicocele may see improvement in sperm quality with varicocele repair. If you have testis shrinkage (atrophy) or pain, it is reasonable to consider repair, but most men with varicocele will not likely be rendered infertile by it. ...Read more

If a urologist doesn't think u need surgery on a varicocele and just wants to check up on it, is there any chance of it just going away?

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

I did a varicocele surgery after that i think i have a thrombosed lymphatic vessel the doctor gave me hirudoid cream does the surgery cause this?

Here are some ...: How long ago did you have varicocele surgery & where/how was it performed? Where is the concerned thrombosed lymphangitis? Without these + physicals, it's hard to judge if both are related or not. As to Hirudoid topical effect to either inflamed vessel or lymphatics, the evidence of its benefit is still lacking, but people/doc use it for, maybe, political correctness as a vehicle of caring & sooth ...Read more
