My left vas deferens is a little bigger than my right when i inspect it while laying down but when i stand up it becomes even bigger is it a problem?

Lastly, dilated veins in the scrotum, benign and called a varicocele, can produce a palpable abnormality that varies in size depending on position. All of these are benign. ...Read more
