Indications For Surgery

  1. Pain
    Varicocele may cause dragging pain in scrotum in 5% to 10% of patients.

  2. Stress pattern of semen
    a) Low sperm count (oligospermia)
    b) Poor motility (asthenospermia)
    c) Abnormal forms
    d) Tapered forms

  3. Testicular Atrophy
    Loss of Testicular size, Flabby testes

The mere presence of varicocele doesn't mean that surgical correction is necessary.

However, varicocele is the most common, identifiable and surgically correctable factor contributing to poor testicular function and decreased semen quality.

Surgical repair of varicocele not only halts the testicular damage but also reverses it.
