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.

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 the 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 the fertility or hormone levels.

Procedure

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.

Surgery- 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. A microscope and other small equipment are then used to close off the damaged veins and reroute the blood through healthier veins.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are varicocele and varicose veins the same?

Varicocele and varicose veins are two different conditions with the similar root cause. Varicocele is the enlargement of veins within the scrotum [loose bag that holds the testicle]. Varicose veins are twisted and swollen veins just under the skin of the leg. Other than the cause, there are no similarities between these conditions.

Why is varicocele more common on the left side?

In most cases, varicoceles occur on the left side of the scrotum. This is because of the anatomy of the male body. The blood flow to the left side is greater than the right side. So, this increases the chances of varicoceles more often in the left testicle than in the right.

Does varicocele cause low testosterone?

Yes, varicocele can cause low testosterone levels. This can occur when the testis doesn’t function properly due to the enlarged veins in the scrotum.

Does varicocele cause erectile dysfunction? 

Erectile dysfunction is not necessarily caused by varicocele. Most men with varicocele become self-conscious about the condition due to which their mental health is affected. And the poor mental state can lead to erectile dysfunction.

Can varicocele cause infertility?

Varicoceles can cause infertility if the enlarged vein start compressing the spermatic cord. This can lead to low sperm production and decrease the sperm quality.
