In brief: Yes

Sometimes varicoceles can be large.
They may be painful or unsightly, and patients prefer that they are reduced or removed.

In brief: Pain, low T

There are now 3 reasons to fix varicoceles: pain, low testosterone (in well selected patients) and infertility.

In brief: If there is pain

Need surgery if there is testicular discomfort or pain unrelieved by routine symptomatic treatment or testicular atrophy (loss of testicular size).
