Varicocele is the enlargement of the veins with in the scrotum of male person. younger males are more commonly associated with this issue, ages 15-25. Usually varicocele is mostly harmless, but not always – it can be associated with infertility issues by contributing to low sperm production and decreased quality of sperm and their motility. Approximately 15 percent of men have a varicocele who are evaluated for infertility and about 40 percent have a varicocele in at least one testicle.
defective valves are the reasons in the veins which leads to the occurrence of varicocele within the scrotum, just above the testicles.When These valves function normally, they regulate the flow of blood to and from the testicles. When this normal flow is hindered, the blood backs up, causing the veins to enlarge. It mostly takes place during puberty, when the testicles are experiencing rapid growth and need the most of the blood in them. In about 80 percent of cases, it mostly occurs in the left testicle area. This poor circulation caused by the varicocele causes higher blood temperature, raising the temperature with in the testes, which can make barrier between sperm production and damage or destroy sperm that is created.
varicocele rarely produces any kind of symptoms, it is mostly common for a person not to be aware that he has one unless it causes problems with fertility or noticed during a routine physical checkup. When symptoms occur, they usually are felt as a dull ache or feeling of heaviness in the testicle, which gets worse during the day, particularly in hot weather or after physical exertion. The enlarged veins or dilated veins in the scrotum can often be felt , and the testicle is smaller on the varicocele side mostly seen.
varicocele can be diagnosed on a routine physical exam when the testicles are felt while the male is in a standing position. Varicoceles which are smaller detected only on further testing, which can involve Doppler ultrasonography and thermography (infrared sensing technology to detect pockets of heat created by the pooled blood).
