15-25 cm3: Testicular volume should range from 15-25 cm3. You'll should be tested for a sub-clinical right varicocele as ell.

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Masturbation shouldn't be a problem 3 days after laparoscopic spermatic vein ligation (minimally invasive surgery for varicocele).

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.

Tx safely w/ varicocelectomy, ligation, or embolization. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
