Is It Possible For Varicoceles In The Shaft Of The Penis?
I have varicocele, but how come it’s not in the testicles, but in the shaft of the penis? Is that the same as in the testes?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Varicocele is a swelling of the blood vessels in the sac of the testicles. This condition is characterized by blood vessels that are clearly visible in the testicular sac. So varicocele is a special term if the condition occurs in the area, while if for example it occurs in the anal or rectal area, the term becomes hemorrhoids.
Therefore, the condition that you experience requires further examination because the dilation of blood vessels in the shaft of the penis itself is a rare thing. Direct examination is needed to avoid misunderstanding, facilitate diagnosis and determine treatment. This is important because if widening does occur, the treatment may not be sold freely and must be under the supervision of a doctor.
However, with the condition of Indonesia which is currently plagued by corona outbreaks, it helps us to reconsider the urgency level of the doctor's examination. If you feel there are no complaints that are very disturbing, in the form of no pain, no erection problems or the like, you should postpone checking to the doctor for the safety of you and others. But if it is already very annoying, no problem to check yourself, may see a general practitioner first or may go directly to a urologist. So, hopefully answering your question.
