Suggest ultrasound: Approximately 90% of varicoceles are left sided and 10% are bilateral. Treatment is varicocelectomy or nonsurgical intervention with embolism of varicocele. Ultrasound is best method of defining presence of varicoceles. You probably should have if not already ultrasound exam to determine etiology of pain.Ultrasound also defines other etiologies of scrotal pain. ...Read more
Big left varicocele cause pain in right testis, and also have discomfort pain above right testis, when i lye on back symptoms on both testis decrease?
Less pressure supine: Bilateral discomfort may be due to bilateral varicoceles(10%), 90% occur on left side. Dilated veins in scrotum compose varicocele.Veins from left internal spermatic vein is 8-10 centimeters longer than right.

Varicose veins: A varicocele is varicose or dilated veins in the scrotum or spermatic cord. These are more common on the left and are due to the absence of valves in the spermatic veins. Infertility may be a problem in 15% of men with varicocele but not all men with varicoceles will be infertile. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Options: Not all varicoceles need to be treated. Reasons to fix a varicocele would be symptoms (pain), infertility (common finding with infertile men), and adolescents with testicle atrophy. Treatment options include open surgical repair including microsurgical approach (with use of microscope), laparoscopic varicocelectomy or percutaneous embolization typically performed by a radiologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not known : Mostly docs believe varicoceles start forming in puberty from faulty valves in the scrotal veins. The blood backs up and causes the veins to swell and become blocked. Nothing you did caused them. Like varicose veins in your leg. See http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/varicocele/ds00618/dsection=causes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Get it checked.: A varicocele is generally a benign condition caused by dilatation of the pampiniform plexus of spermatic veins. They usually occur on the left side. If there are no symptoms, dull ache, pain, or sense of fullness, usually nothing needs to be done. Minor pain can be conservatively managed with scrotal support & nsaids. Severe pain or infertility can be treated surgically by ligation of the vessels. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Vericocele: The idiopathic varicocele occurs when the valves within the veins along the spermatic cord do not work properly. This is essentially the same process as varicose veins, which are common in the legs. This results in backflow of blood into the pampiniform plexus and causes increased pressures, which on rare occasion can lead to permanent damage to the testicular tissue due to disruption of normal supply of oxygenated blood via the testicular artery. ...Read more
Varicocele: Most common therapy for varicocele is a varicocelectomy either through an open approach or a laparoscopy. Alternatively, embolization of a varicocele can also be performed as well. The basic concept is a disruption of the venous back flow to the testicle. www.peedoc.com @drhtay. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
