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.

Varicocele is treated in several ways that include percutaneous embolization, open surgery, and laparoscopic surgery.

Percutaneous Embolization

During this procedure, the radiologist inserts a catheter into the veins through a tube with X-Ray guidance and repairs varicocele. It is performed under the influence of anesthesia through a small hole in the groins.


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 healthy and unaffected veins.

The doctor then applies a dressing to the site of the incision. The surgery of varicocele is also known as varicocelectomy. The whole procedure is performed under the influence of anesthesia. Varicocele Surgery is done in two ways, including open surgery and laparoscopic surgery.

Why is Varicocele Treatment Necessary?

Varicocele is considered the most common reason for male infertility that can be corrected. Varicocele not only causes physical discomforts such as swelling and pain but also create immense mental pressure.

Timely and proper treatment of varicocele is extremely important. Ignoring the symptoms or leaving varicocele untreated for a long period of time can cause various issues related to infertility.

Following are the infertility issues related to varicoceles:-

  1. As a varicocele grows bigger in size, it pushes aside the testicle in the scrotal sac. This causes the shrinking of testicles that is known as testicular atrophy in medical terms.
  2. One of the WHO researches shows that the males above 30 years of age who suffered from varicocele have lower testosterone levels (male hormone) in comparison to men who did not have varicoceles. And, testosterone is necessary for the optimum production of healthy sperm. Thus, varicoceles have a direct negative impact on the process of sperm formation (spermatogenesis).
  3. Rupturing of varicocele can cause bleeding in the scrotum. This rare and complicated phenomenon is known as a scrotal hematoma
  4. Episodes of erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation also become frequent with varicocele.

How is Varicocele Treated In Kolkata?

You might not need varicocele treatment as several men with varicocele are able to father a child without any treatment. However, if your varicocele causes pain, swelling, discomfort, testicular atrophy, or if the risk of developing infertility is high, you should undergo varicocele repair.

Why Do People Choose Laparoscopic Varicocele Surgery In Kolkata?
