About Varicocele

When the veins in the scrotum enlarge, the condition is known as Varicocele. Varicocele affects sperm production and function that 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.

The health care professional uses your medical history, a physical exam, blood and imaging tests to diagnose fluid in the testicles. Blood tests and ultrasonography may also be asked by the doctor to confirm the reason for swelling.

  • Physical exam: During the physical examination, the doctor checks for tenderness.
  • Semen analysis and hormone tests: This is used to detect Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and low testosterone.
  • Scrotal ultrasound: In scrotal ultrasound, high frequency is used to create images of the scrotum. It allows the doctor to ensure there isn’t another reason for the symptoms.


  • Percutaneous embolization: In this procedure, the radiologist injects a catheter into the veins through a tube with X-Ray guidance. It is performed under the influence of anesthesia through a small hole in the groins.
  • Surgery: The most effective treatment for curing a varicocele is surgery. This is done when the varicocele causes discomfort or the doctor feels there is a risk of infertility. A small incision is made in the abdomen or upper thigh. After that using ultrasound and surgical equipment, the doctor closes the affected veins to reroute the blood through other unaffected veins. The doctor then applies a dressing to the site of the incision. This is known as varicocelectomy.

The whole procedure is performed under the influence of anesthesia. At Pristyn Care, Chennai we use the latest laparoscopic technique to make the incisions. This is absolutely painless and ensures minimum blood loss.

Varicocele is a medical condition of the male scrotum that is very discomforting and negatively affects male fertility. This problem is predominantly found in males of 15 – 25 years of age and mostly develops on the left side of the scrotum. Varicocele is similar to varicose veins but it occurs around the testicles. In the condition of varicocele, scrotum is enlarged because of the malfunctioning in the valves that pump the blood. Pristyn Care has the best surgeons who cure varicocele with the help of modern treatment methods.

Pristyn Care is equipped with advanced laparoscopic, microscopic, and other techniques that are commonly used for varicocele treatment. Modern varicocelectomy surgery treats varicocele without any major incisions, stitches or bleeding. Laparoscopic varicocelectomy is the best and safest treatment option for prolonged and severe cases of varicocele. So delay no more, book your appointment with a Pristyn Care doctor and get rid of varicocele once and for all.

Why is varicocele treatment necessary?

A person suffering from varicocele is likely to experience pain in the scrotum. The pain and the swelling of scrotum keeps on getting severe if proper treatment is not received in time.

  • Grade 0 varicocele- This is the initial stage of varicocele where the condition is asymptomatic.
  • Grade 1 varicocele- At this stage, the varicocele is not visible but the initial signs start to show. The patient may experience discomfort and soreness in the scrotal region. Grade 1 varicoceles are diagnosed during a physical exam with the help of a breathing exercise called valsalva maneuver.
  • Grade 2 varicocele– Grade 2 varicoceles are still not visible but the symptoms start to worsen. These varicoceles are also diagnosed during physical exams but no additional breathing exercises are needed.
  • Grade 3 varicocele- This is the advanced stage of varicocele where the enlarged veins in the scrotum become visible. The symptoms aggravate by the day and the risk of complications also increases significantly.

As it is clear that the condition of varicocele does not resolve on its own without medical intervention, earliest diagnosis and treatment is necessary.

Complications That Can Arise If Varicocele Is Not Treated On Time

Following are the major complications that can arise due to untreated varicocele:

  • Forming of blood clot(s) in the damaged veins
  • Damaged testicles
  • Erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation
  • Rupturing of vein due to blood clot
  • Infection in the scrotum
  • Rupturing of varicocele as a traumatic response (e.g. during sexual intercourse)
