Varicocele Causes And Treatment Options

A varicocele is an abnormally swollen (varicose) vein that diminishes or blocks blood flow around the testes. Because they raise the temperature of the scrotum, varicoceles have been linked to poor sperm production and quality. However, varicoceles also are present in fertile men, causing debate over the effectiveness of treatment.

Treatment Options For Varicoceles

Varicocele Surgery – recommended by some for varicocele repair, a microsurgical technique is used to tie off the vein to eliminate the swelling.
