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.

I started with slight testicular discomfort. After passing stool, the pain escalated & is much more severe. It is centered between my thigh & scrotum?

A few things: Come to mind. When groin symptoms are related to passing stool i think of inguinal hernia or prostate irritation. However because you have a history of crohn's disease and have surgery because of it I am most concerned with symptoms coming from that. (scar tissue, fistula, abcess) first place to start is with your GI doc. If you have a fever or are having severe symptoms then go to the hospital. ...Read more

Other causes of testicle pain include trauma, infection, twisting off an appendix of a testicle (a small lump next to a testicle), etc... Since a guy usually cannot tell if his testicle is twisting, an exam by the doctor is needed. ...Read more
