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. Symptomes include pain class="apple-converted-space": 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.
