My left testis is so small and so hard to palpate due to varicocele. Is this an emergency? Is it true only young has the chance to change size? Im 21.

My left testis is so small and so hard to palpate due to varicocele. Is this an emergency? Is it true only young has the chance to change size? Im 21.
