Nonsurgical Treatment for Male Infertility
A varicocele is a varicose vein of the testicle and scrotum that may cause pain, testicular atrophy (shrinkage) or fertility problems. Symptoms include pain: Aching pain when an individual has been standing or sitting for long periods of time and pressure builds up on the affected veins. Typically, painful varicoceles are prominent in size.
Shrinking of the testicles is another sign of varicoceles. Often, once the testicle is repaired it will return to normal size.
