    What is Varicoceles?

    Varicoceles (swollen scrotal veins) affect one out of every five men and are often asymptomatic. It's possible that you'll be able to avoid counselling. It's a common cause of male infertility. After a varicocele is healed, some people may have more reproductive options.

        Varicocele - Condition

        A varicocele is a condition in which the veins in the loose bag of skin that supports the testicles expand (scrotum). The testicles' oxygen-depleted blood is transported by these veins. When blood collects in the veins instead of flowing freely out of the scrotum, a varicocele develops.

        Varicoceles commonly appear throughout adolescence and progress over time. They may cause discomfort but usually have no typical symptoms. A varicocele can result in poor testicle development, inadequate sperm production, or other issues that can lead to infertility. To address these issues, varicocele surgery may be indicated.

        Varicocele - Symptoms

        A varicocele is a benign growth on the left side of the scrotum that causes no symptoms. Some possible indications of varicocele are:

        • When standing or late in the day, a dull, agonizing ache or discomfort is more common. Pain is typically relieved by lying down.
        • In the scrotum, there is a mass. A mass resembling a "bag of worms" may be observed above the testicle if the varicocele is large enough. A tiny varicocele may not be seen but is detectable by touch.
        • Testicles of various sizes. It's possible that the damaged testicle is visibly smaller than the other.
        • Infertility. Although a varicocele might make it difficult to father a child, not all varicoceles result in sterility.

        Varicocele - Surgical Procedures

        Varicocele surgery can be done in a variety of methods. All of them entail obstructing blood flow through the pampiniform plexus veins.

        The procedure is carried out under general anesthesia. The two most prevalent surgical methods are:

        • Microscopic varicocelectomy - This procedure involves a 1 cm incision above the scrotum by the surgeon. The surgeon uses a microscope to ligate all minor veins while leaving the vas deferens, testicular arteries, and lymphatic drainage alone. The treatment takes about 2 to 3 hours, and the patient is sent home the same day.
        • Laparoscopic varicocelectomy - The surgeon inserts small tubes into the abdomen and performs vein ligation using the laparoscopic varicocelectomy procedure. The process is shorter in the abdomen since there are fewer veins to ligate, and it takes about 30-40 minutes to complete. The patient is sent home the same day.

        Recovery & Post Operation Take Care

        For around 3 weeks after surgery, or until your doctor says it's acceptable, avoid intense activity like cycling, jogging, weight lifting, or aerobic exercise. Avoid lifting more than 10 pounds for the first 7 days after surgery (4.5 kilograms).

          All You Want To Know About Varicocele

          FAQ Back
          FAQ Front

          A varicocele is defined by a scrotal enlargement, a heavy sensation, enlarged veins, dull or acute pain, and reproductive issues. Varicocele that is asymptomatic is common, but it might become more visible with time. When a varicocele reaches a certain size, men may have symptoms.

          Boys should have annual wellness visits to assess the development and health of their testicles. It is critical to make and keep these appointments. Pain, swelling, or a lump in the scrotum can be caused by a variety of factors. If you encounter any of these symptoms, see your doctor right away to receive a proper diagnosis.

          To relieve the swelling and pain of the varicocele, use ice packs and cold compressions twice or thrice a day. Apply the ice pack to the scrotum or groin area for 10-15 minutes. Remember not to use ice directly on the scrotum because it can aggravate the pain.

          It can be difficult for your body to control the temperature of your testicles if you have a varicocele. Toxic accumulation and oxidative stress can occur as a result. The following difficulties may be caused by these factors:

          • Testicular health is in poor shape. A varicocele can prevent testicle growth, hormone production, and other aspects of testicular health and function in boys going through puberty. A varicocele in men can cause progressive shrinking due to tissue loss.
          • Infertility is not always caused by a varicocele. An estimated 10% to 20% of men with varicocele have trouble fathering a child. Around 40% of males who have fertility issues have a varicocele.

          The most common therapy for symptomatic varicoceles is open surgical ligation by a urologist. Varicocele embolization, a nonsurgical procedure performed by an interventional radiologist, is just as successful as surgery but with less risk, pain, and downtime.

          Over 90 to 99 percent of varicoceles are effectively removed with surgery. However, improvements in sperm parameters can take 3 to 6 months.

          Varicocele does not produce any visible discomfort in the majority of patients. Varicocele, on the other hand, can cause mild to severe scrotal pain. Patients commonly describe an "aching" sensation in the scrotum, which is usually brought on by extended standing or exertion.
