Varicocele is a mass of veins within the scrotum that are enlarged. This enlargement will cause reproductive issues if the valves in the testes cause blood to pool within the scrotum. Blood circulation and temperature of the testes is affected by this pooling of the blood thus leading to poor morphology decreased motility of sperm.
How is it detected?
Most people with varicoceles are asymptomatic. Some pain may be experienced and this can vary from a dull, heavy discomfort to a sharp pain. The pain may increase with sitting, standing or strenuous activity and is usually resolved when lying flat on the back.
