About Varicocele

When the veins in the scrotum enlarge, the condition is known as Varicocele. Varicocele affects sperm production and function which can potentially reduce fertility. Out of a hundred males, ten to fifteen have varicocele. Varicoceles are found to be more common on the left side of the scrotum as the male anatomy is not the same on both sides.

Treatment

Diagnosis

The doctor may ask you about your medical history and then conduct some physical exams, blood tests, and imaging tests to assess the severity of the condition.

The doctor conducts a physical exam to look for tenderness and to examine the testicles. After the physical exam, the doctor may also conduct a scrotal ultrasound to get a detailed and accurate picture of the scrotal veins.

In addition to these, some blood tests and semen analysis tests may also be performed to check if varicoceles have impacted fertility or hormone levels.

Procedure

At Pristyn Care, we employ the following techniques for the treatment of varicocele.

Non-Surgical Treatment

Percutaneous embolization- In this procedure, the doctor inserts a catheter into the body through the groin. The doctor then injects a solution through this catheter into the affected scrotal veins. The solution blocks the vein by scarring it and the damaged vein then collapses. The blood then flows through other healthy veins and the varicocele is treated.

Surgical Treatment

  • Open Varicocelectomy- The most effective treatment for curing a varicocele is surgery. The surgical treatment of varicoceles is known as varicocelectomy. This is done when the varicocele causes discomfort or the doctor feels there is a risk of infertility. The whole procedure is performed under the influence of anesthesia.

In this procedure, the surgeon makes a small incision in the abdomen or upper thigh region. Then the damaged veins are closed off and the blood is rerouted through healthier veins.

  • Laparoscopic Varicocele Surgery- This surgical technique involves making keyhole-sized incisions around the scrotum to access the vein and remove it. Once the damaged or affected vein is removed, the swelling and other problems caused by the varicocele will also disappear shortly.
  • Microscopic Varicocele Surgery- As the name suggests, this surgery is done by making even smaller incisions. A microscope is used to find the damaged vein and remove it with precision. When the surgery is performed using this technique, there is no need for stitches and the recovery is also quicker.

All of these techniques are safe and effective for varicocele treatment. The method is chosen after diagnosis and a detailed discussion with the patient.

If you are looking for the best doctors and hospitals for varicocele treatment, Pristyn Care is the place for you. At Pristyn Care, we offer advanced laparoscopic treatment to help you get rid of varicoceles within no time.

Lifting heavy weights or objects on a regular basis or frequently is among the major causes that trigger varicocele.

To learn more about the surgical and non-surgical treatment for varicocele, you can book a consultation with our doctors.

Understand the Benefits of Minimally Invasive Varicocele Surgery

At Pristyn Care, our doctors prefer using minimally invasive techniques as they have the following benefits:

  • Smaller Incisions– As the name signifies, minimally invasive surgery is done through tiny incisions with the help of a laparoscope or microscope and other small surgical instruments.
  • Less Pain- The surgery causes minimal pain during and after the procedure. Thus, the patient needs fewer medications to resume regular activities quickly.
  • Shorter Hospital Stay– A patient who undergoes minimally invasive surgery doesn’t need to stay in the hospital for more than 24 hours as their vitals doesn’t take long to return to their normal state.
  • Quicker Recovery- Due to the smaller size of the incision, the wound heals quickly and smoothly. Thus, the overall recovery is much faster than open surgery.
  • Less Scarring– As the incisions are tiny, they heal completely without leaving a scar on the body. Normally, even stitches are not needed to close the wound. And if there are stitches, they will also disappear over time without causing visible scarring.
  • Increased Accuracy- The minimally invasive techniques are performed using tools like laparoscope and microscope which provide clear visualization of the internal organs. Thus, the doctors can carry out the procedure with high precision, thereby, improving the success rate as well.

After learning about these benefits, most people choose minimally invasive surgeries (MIS). That’s why Pristyn Care leverages laparoscopic, microscopic, and embolization techniques for varicocele treatment in Bangalore.

Tips to Manage the Symptoms of Varicocele

  • To carry on with your routine activities without much discomfort, make sure that you wear a jockstrap for scrotal support so that the pressure on the scrotum can be minimized.
  • Avoid wearing clothes that are too tight around the waist and groin area as these can worsen the pain and swelling.
  • Stay hydrated throughout the day. Drink a lot of fluids so that all the organs in your body function optimally.
  • Use ice packs and cold compresses on the scrotum. This would help reduce the swelling and pain.
  • Keep your scrotum elevated while lying down or sitting to improve the blood circulation in the scrotum region. You can use pillows or towels for this purpose.
  • Mild exercise and yoga can be quite helpful in enhancing the flow of blood and improving blood circulation.
  • Stay away from strenuous and vigorous exercises so as to prevent the worsening of the condition.
  • Do not lift heavyweights. This can excessively pressurize your lower body and aggravate the symptoms.
