Can a man with a big varicocele of the testicle still have children?

Sometimes yes: The connection of varicocele and male sub-fertility is not entirely consistent: though some men with sub-fertility are helped by varicocele repair, a majority of men with varicocele never have fertility problems. Expert groups of urologists and res often disagree on specifics, so for a less general answer i recommend getting a in-person evaluation with an expert you trust. ...Read more

I have a right-sided varicocele in testicle. What is causing the varicocele?

I have a right-sided varicocele in testicle. What is causing the varicocele?

Here are some...: Varicocele happens to some 15% of men with 90% on the left and 10% on both sides. Anatomically, the almost vertically draining left testicular vein into left renal vein has been blamed for its common occurrence on left. Vast majority of cases pose no clinical significance. But for its sudden fast occurrence, one has to consider possible proximal obstruction by any enlarging retroperitoneal mass. ...Read more

Testicle volume is 5cc left and 6cc right. Is that normal for an adult? I do have a varicocele on the left side.

15-25 cm3: Testicular volume should range from 15-25 cm3. You'll should be tested for a sub-clinical right varicocele as ell. Regardless, testicular volume ranging from 5-6 cm3 is extremely low and would suggest severe dysgeneisi/mal-development. Should also be considered for genetic testing..... ...Read more

If a person have right side varicoceles then how long would it take testicle to shrink? Does it shrink in all cases?

If a person have right side varicoceles then how long would it take testicle to shrink? Does it shrink in all cases?

Unknown: Varicoceles (swollen spermatic veins) are fairly common. They can be associated with discomfort, shrinkage (or "atrophy") of the testicle on that side. In some men with infertility and varicocele, repair may improve subpar semen parameters and fertility. However, in the absence of the above conditions, varicoceles do not necessarily require repair, as they may not lead to those problems. ...Read more

Can i masturbate after 3 days of a varicocele surgery on my left testicle?

Can i masturbate after 3 days of a varicocele surgery on my left testicle?

What is the rush?: Am surprised UR in the mood so soon after surgery. Masturbation shouldn't be a problem 3 days after laparoscopic spermatic vein ligation (minimally invasive surgery for varicocele). Might be a bit traumatic if surgery was via scrotum or or at neck of scrotum. U probably wouldn't feel like it if U had surgery via open trans-abdominal surgery ...Read more

Is it ever that a man with varicocele of the testicles still have children?

Is it ever that a man with varicocele of the testicles still have children?

Still possible.: A varicocele is a mass in the scrotum caused by defective valves in the testicular veins, which cause blood to pool, and the veins to expand. The pooling blood raises testicular temperature and affects testosterone and sperm production, which can affect fertility. Men can still have babies w/ this, but the odds are lower. Tx safely w/ varicocelectomy, ligation, or embolization. ...Read more
