What is a 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.

Types of Varicocele

There are two types of varicocele which can be further categorized into 3 types.

Primary Varicocele develops when the left internal spermatic veins and the renal vein creates pressure inside the scrotum. In addition to this, there can be malfunctioning of the valves in the veins.

Secondary Varicocele develops when an unwanted growth of skin in the scrotum restricts the flow of blood to the internal spermatic vein. Whether someone is suffering from primary or secondary varicocele, the doctor diagnoses the grade of the varicocele the patient is suffering from.

  • Grade 1 Varicocele: In this classification of varicocele, the affected veins are not visible to the naked eyes. It gets detected only during a physical examination.
  • Grade 2 Varicocele: In this category, the veins are larger than grade 1 but these are still invisible to the eye.
  • Grade 3 Varicocele: These are enlarged veins that are easily visible to the naked eye.

Treatment

Diagnosis

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.

Procedure

Percutaneous embolization: In this procedure, the radiologist injects 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.
