Hi it has been 9 days since my varicocele surgery and I had just recently masturbated. Am I in trouble? Did I just ruin everything?
Varicocele recur: Unlikely that you could cause the recurrence in 5 days since a varicocelectomy is usually performed by tying off veins that lead to the testicle. You could just have swelling from the surgery or bruising due to reopening of small veins where the surgery was performed. After any scrotal surgery, 1 week of scrotal support, ice pack, and Ibuprofen will help heal things. ...Read more

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

I am 16, and had laparoscopic varicocele surgery, everything was fine but 6 days after I masturbated and my testicle is bigger, swollen and it pains?
Contact doctor now: Maybe unrelated to masturbation, perhaps delayed bleeding into the surgical site; or a post op infection. First review any paperwork you were given after the surgery; it might have information about such events and what to do about them. If not, contact the doctor who did the surgery. Do it immediately if the pain is severe, if there is redness of the skin in the area, or if you have fever. ...Read more
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

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
Treatment: 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
Not easy: Unfortunately this is a little difficult to do on yourself, if you do not know what to feel for. Even teaching young doctors and residents it can take a while to teach them how and what to feel for. Best to see your doctor who can perform a proper examination. The good news is most varicoceles are not a problem unless you have symptoms associated with it. Sorry this wasn't more helpful. Good luck ...Read more
