Left varicocele: Veins in the scrotum are usually varicocele. Varicocele is more common on the left side. This has to do with the way the vein course back to heart from the testicle. On the left side it takes a hard 90 degree turn to get to the heart. The right side has a more direct route to the heart. The turn on the left can be an obstacle of sorts and make the veins maintain blood closer the testicle. ...Read more

Get evaluated.: There are many reasons for scrotal enlargement, most of them benign. But you should seek prompt evaluation by a physician to see if the enlargement is in the testicle itself, which could be due to a testicular cancer. A scrotal ultrasound is likely required to visualize the scrotal contents, but will depend on physician assessment. Hydroceles, spermatoceles, and varicoceles are also some causes. ...Read more

I have black vein on my left side of scrotum is it varicocele?

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

Varicocele: Swollen veins inside the scrotum can be caused by a varicocele or varicose veins which can slow down the testicle circulation and thus produce pain because of lack of oxygen. Having the varicocele on the right side for a prolonged length of time not only causes atrophy or shrinkage of the testicle but also causes decreased sperm production. ...Read more

Structural test: The left sided finding is likely just a coincidence that you have had for years.

Follow up with urologist to help sort out what is source. ...Read more

Found in scrotal us: left side testis vein are mildly dilated but having pain and swelling on right testis vein for the last 8 months.

Abnormal ultrasound: While the radiologist is reporting an abnormality of the vein (on the unaffected side), it seems clear that he doesn't know what it indicates. It just a finding, and not a diagnosis. I would basically call this ultrasound report negative or normal. You will have to consider other causes of your pain--may be benign, chronic, idiopathic orchalgia, a well known condition with no clear cause. ...Read more

Not systemic: Whole body sensations like this are common in anxiety or hyper awareness following a legitimate medical ailment. Varicoceles are not the harbinger of any other vessel disease and varicoceles and vessels in general do not twitch. The headache is also unrelated to the varicocele. ...Read more
