There is inflammation of the veins inside the varicose, scrotum (testicular, scrotum that contains testicular). Varicocele occurs when valves inside the veins do not function properly. It is mostly on the left side. In the veins, which are the surface of the spermic card and from which blood is sent back to the body from the testicle. It is in the same way as varicose veins in the foot.
Varicocele is most commonly seen during adolescence when testicles develop the most and testes require more blood to meet the growing needs of more oxygen and nutrients. Since more blood is going into the tests, more blood should also be removed from here. If the valves are not functioning properly, the excess blood is not controlled in the testicles by the veins and blood cells and stops there causing the problem of varicocele.
If large varicoceles develop in a person after adolescence, it should be examined to ensure that there is no tumor in the abdomen that is hindering the blood and unable to get the blood back to the heart.
Varicocele usually has no symptoms, but inflammation, stress, and pain in the testicle very often appear like symptoms. There are two glands of the testicle egg shape that are found in men and are responsible for making sperm and hormones. Varicocele in men is a common problem. Varicocele may affect fertility in males. About 25 percent of men, who have low sperm strength and quality, are seen to have varicocele. But varicocele always has an effect on sperm, it is not considered by doctors. Varicocele can be cured by surgery.
- Synonym: testicular-venous, Scrotum Varicose Veins, Varicocele
- Disease: an increase of nerves within the testicular in male, chronic disease
- Diagnosis: Automatically detect, laboratory tests or imaging
- Reason: malfunction of valves, compression of the vein by a nearby structure
- Symptoms: Sometimes no symptoms arise, but this one can cause low sperm formation and poor quality, which can lead to infertility.
- Treatment: Possible, surgery, consult a doctor for medical advice
- Prevention: Not possible.
What is Varicocele?
Varicose veins of varicose testicle and scrotum are inflamed. It sometimes causes terrible pain. Sometimes this problem does not make any symptoms, but heavy-weight lifting leads to pain and swelling and other symptoms.
Varicocele can affect the age of 15-35 years. This condition is created when the valves of the Varicose veins do not work properly. Non-functioning of the valve stops the blood attack causing inflammation. Inflammation also disrupts the process of semen formation.
Studies show that about 50-70% of men begin to become semen when they are treated with varicocele.
Can fertility be affected by varicocele?
It is believed that varicose can affect fertility. Varicocele is quite common in men with fertility problems. It is estimated that this problem is observed in about 25% of all men suffering from reproductive problems. But varicocele does not always affect fertility. Many men with a varicocele do not have fertility problems.
Recent studies concluded that semen analysis/analysis from varicocele/ Semen analysis (concentration, mobility, further progress, and morphology) affects almost all parameters. Varicoceles affect the functioning of sperms.
Problems due to Varicocele
It can cause the following problems:
- Sterility infertility
- the decrease in the quality and quantity of the sperm
- damage to the testicles, they may not grow appropriately
- cause discomfort leading to a heavy dragging feeling in the scrotum
- Damage to the cells that make testosterone and may lead to a decreased overall testosterone level
Treatment of Varicocele
Varicoceles, in general, do not have to be treated. Over-the-counter painkillers are given and athletic underwear can be advised to relieve further pressure.
But some experts suggest treatment for people who have fertility problems. This may increase the likelihood of improving their fertility.
Surgery to fix varicocele is called varicocelectomy, for this procedure:
- You will be given anesthesia.
- The urologist will tie the abnormal veins by planting a cut in the lower abdomen so that the blood goes into the body with normal vents.
- You may be asked to apply ice packs after surgery to reduce inflammation.
In laparoscopic surgery, the surgeon makes a small incision in your abdomen and uses laparoscopic through the incision to see and repair the varicocele.
Another option is varicocele embolization. For this process:
In embolization, a small hollow tube called a catheter (tube) is inserted with the help of imaging inside the body. Sedation and local anesthesia are given so that no pain is felt. The doctor is able to make a small hole in the lower abdomen and the catheter is transported directly to the testicular van via the femotoral. The surgeon then injects a contrast die and is traced to where the blockage is. Blood attacks in the arteries are blocked using a wire, balloon, or sclerosing agent. This reduces the pressure on the varicoceles. When the bad artery is closed, the blood starts to occur the other way.
By embolizing, the problem is removed by shutting down the bad and then flowing from the right blood.
After surgery, you may have swelling – pain at the affected place for 3 to 6 weeks.
