Varicocele

SYMPTOMS

Many a times the enlarged / twisted veins in the scrotum go unnoticed. However the following symptoms might occur:

  • Dull ache in the scrotum esp after some exercise or standing for long.
  • Swelling on one side of the scrotum.
  • A lumpy feeling in the scrotum.
  • Slower growth or reduced size of the testicle on the side of the varicocele.
  • Some men may have problems with fertility.

CAUSES

The swelling is due to blood backing up in the vein that leads from the testicle back to the body as the valves inside the vein are not working properly. (similar to varicose veins seen in legs). In rare cases a kidney tumour might cause it by blocking the blood flow.
