Does The Varicocele Cause The Testicles To Shrink And Infertility?
, do all varicoceles cause infertility? in conditions that cause the size of the testes to shrink, but not my husband .. the size does not shrink
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Varicocele is a condition of swelling of blood vessels in the testis area or testicular sac. Normally, blood vessels in this area should not be felt. But in patients with varicoceles, swelling that occurs makes these blood vessels not only palpable, but in severe conditions can actually be seen from afar.
It is still unclear what causes this condition to occur, and it is also unclear what increases a person's risk of experiencing this. So for those who experience it, there is no need to regret because so far, experiencing varicoceles is only based on mere possibilities.
Regarding your question, varicocele left alone can indeed cause infertility. This is because varicocele conditions can cause the accumulation of toxins or poisons, make optimal temperature regulation in the testes become damaged, and cause shrinking of the testicles, where sperm cells are produced. But not all varicoceles lead to infertility, precisely those that are mild and which are treated immediately. If varicocele is treated immediately, all these complications can be avoided.
It's just not right if you seem to judge that the varicocele experienced by your husband is mild because now it does not shrink. Because we won't know when it will shrink, and the reduction won't shrink fast like a balloon, but slowly so that when we wake up, it's not impossible it's too late.
Therefore, check your husband at a urology surgeon, and ask what is the best treatment. If it is said to be operated on, then you should obey it for the good of your own husband. So, hopefully answering your question.
