Varicocoeles: Hello Tina919~ no, aggressive sex will not cause varicocoeles, they are congenital. Sounds as though you are worried about aggressive sex. Its ok too, but if you slow it down a little, it lasts a little longer and might not wear you down as much! Moderation is a good principle to live by! But you are unlikely to cause permanent damage to your genitalia by excessive passion! Thanks ...Read more

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 more
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 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

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 more
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 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
