Varicocele Treatment That Does Not Cause Complaints?
Hello, I am 16 years old, I have varicocele, is there a gradual treatment to cure varicoceles, because there are no symptoms yet?
Hello Humam, thank you for asking.
First it must be explained first, have you ever seen a doctor and got a definitive diagnosis? As you know, a varicocele is a dilation of veins in the scrotum. These veins carry blood from the testes to the penis. In a varicocele, veins damage the valves, resulting in blood collection in the veins. Veins become wide and winding like worms. The picture is similar to varicose veins in the limbs.
Indeed, varicoceles are asymptomatic. Varicoceles can occur in both testicles, although the left testis experiences it more often. In asymptomatic varicoceles the doctor will not recommend any action. You only need to make routine observations. If you feel or see further vein dilation, you should consult a doctor.
If you later experience symptoms such as pain in the testicles and scrotum accompanied by swelling and redness, then you should immediately consult a doctor. Complications can be in the form of shrinking testicles and impaired sperm production. If symptoms do occur, the doctor will determine the action, whether embolization, open surgery, or laparoscopic surgery. All of these actions aim to bind or close the dilated veins.
In the meantime you don't need to take any special actions. You can try to wear special pants to reduce pressure on the scrotum. Avoid standing static for too long. Try not to push excessively when defecating and when lifting heavy loads.
Hope this answer helps. Regards.
