Varicocele is the dialatation of pampiniform plexus of the spermatic cord in males. Due to this abnormality, there is increased temperature in the affected testicle leading to abnormality in semen parameters in affected males.Most varicoceles are asymptomatic. However, they can be uncomfortable and cause scrotal pain.
This pain is generally mild to moderate, occurs with long periods of sitting, standing or activity and is relieved by lying down. Although it can be uncomfortable before bedtime (after a long day of activity), it generally does not occur upon awakening after a night’s rest. The pain is dull, congestive‚ “tooth ache” like and generally doesn’t refer elsewhere.
