Can Varicoceles Cause Difficult Bowel Movements And Farting?
Tonight, I want to ask whether varicocele can cause difficult bowel movements and farts? Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Varicocele is enlargement or dilation of veins in the testes. Widening of the veins in the testes will not cause symptoms such as difficult bowel movements and difficult farts. The relationship that might actually be the opposite, the difficulty of defecating that occurs continuously (chronic constipation) is one of the risk factors for varicocele and one of the factors that can exacerbate existing varicoceles.
Therefore, if you currently have difficulty defecating, you should try to improve your diet (increase fiber consumption), increase drinking, and increase your physical activity. In addition, you should not sit too long, do not hold back the urge to defecate, and exercise regularly. Do not strain too hard when you defecate because this can aggravate the condition of varicocele. If indeed your bowel is so hard that it is difficult to remove, you can try to consume stool softeners such as lactulose or brine (magnesium salt).
For your varicocele, discuss the condition with your urologist for further evaluation and treatment.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
