Hello, Varicose veins in testicles needs to be treated with varicocele surgery or varicocele embolization in which a tube is inserted into the groin and then guided under x-ray or ultrasound to the varicose veins. You should get it examined from a urologist and discuss these two treatment options. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
It could due to an infection, a ruptured sebaceous cyst, varicose veins or due to a damage to the capillaries of the scrotum producing a lesion called angiokeratoma. Please do consult a urologist and seek an opinion on the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
Hi Welcome to the forum! If the varicocele (varicose veins in scrotum) is asymptomatic and infertility is not an issue, no treatment is required. Mild discomfort can be managed by wearing an athletic supporter or snug-fitting underwear during strenuous activity or exercise. However if the person wants to be a father in future, it is better to get it operated. Varicoceles are known to cause infertility as they affect sperm production, especially if they are bilateral.
I am surprised they operated on your scrotum veins, my scrotum is full of dead veins that feel like a bundle beside my testicles.
An ultrasound may be done to confirm the diagnosis and is one of the best tests. Other than that, the veins on the penis and lower abdomen can be due to varicose vein of the penis or due to Mondor’s disease. However for both these symptoms an inguinal hernia should also be ruled out. In penile varicose vein, when you feel the vein, you will notice that it feels kind of lumpy, but not tender to touch.
I also have varicose veins on my scrotum. They are all on just the left side of my scrotum. Is this unusual? What would cause them to pop up on the scrotum? They do bleed occasionally and it is embarrassing to have blood stains on the crotch of your pants. Is there anything I can do to help prevention of the bleeding? Plus is there any way of hiding them? It is kinda embarassing when at the gym in the showers and you have these purple bumps all over one side of your scrotum.

Two years later and the testicle pain is -- finally -- nearly completely gone, with only mild recurrences now and then. I am left, though, with varicose veins on them and my penis! They showed up on my testicles probably two weeks after the surgery, when the swelling went down. In December 2009 a painful vien showed up on the top, left side of my penis. It soon spread all over, with it turning to throbbing pain in the head that lasted for several days.
after freaking out a bit initially i learned it was a varicocele and not to worry unless it caused me any problems.. i noticed a few extra veins on my penis and bottom of scrotum after a while but nothing too bad.. however about 6 months ago i noticed these veins started getting worse.. the ones on my penis in particular.. they are not the normal penis veins but rather spider looking and they are increasing a nd spreading out all over my penis..
I found this advice in a thread from 2009 and sounds similar to what you described. These swollen veins can be due to varicose veins or superficial thrombophlebitis. Penile varicose veins may bruise during sexual intercourse and thus wearing of a condom is highly recommended. Also use of lubricants is recommended during masturbation or during sexual intercourse to avoid bruising the vein. Mondor’s disease is superficial thrombophlebitis of the penis.
Hello, This can be due to varicose veins or Mondor’s disease. It is superficial thrombophlebitis of the penis. This is an inflammatory reaction to a clot within the vein. This subsequently causes blockages and dilation of the vein. It is typically painless, but can be painful. In studies, patients were noted to have thrombophlebitis after a prolonged sexual act with or without intercourse. It was described as cord-like thickening of the superficial penile veins.
Recently the problems got much worse when all the veins on my scrotum became permanently red or purple. Not just the one's shown in this picture, but all over my scrotum are red veins. The skin on my scrotum has also changed dramatically. The scrotum itself hangs a lot lower than usual and when it does happen to be cold and pulled up to the body, it is very rough feeling. I've been tested for all STI's as well as had a platelet count and all is normal.
I have gone to my urologist for the 4 months now and all he has determined is that I have varicose veins. It feels like the muscle that i use to push out urine and waste is not strong enough or something. The symptoms get worse when I decide to work out or are stressed. I must add that I was very stressed when I thought I had an STD. The symptoms improve a bit when I wear underwear (tighty-whities), not boxers.
31 year old male with history of alport syndrome had ultrasound done on testicles which confimed palpable left varicose cell with veins measuring 4mm could this be cancer particularly renal cell-where do i go from here
55:15 Varicose veins (on a part of the body) that start bleeding are usually a symptom of high-blood pressure or a hypertensive episode (unless he was rubbing so hard it broke the skin from the outside). Does he have a diagnosed HBP problem already? In either event he needs to inform the doctor about this problem (especially if it reoccurs).

I'm a 25 year old man, came across a small varicose vein on my leg a year ago and found another small one on my thigh, turns out my mom has them and maybe I inherited my moms weak veins? Anyway just 4 days ago, I got a sudden dull pain like the aftermath of being kicked in the nuts. A lingering ache in my left testicle, after being outside sun bathing.
It is normal to have a bulging vein on and off on the penis at various locations. They disappear as they come. If a vein persists for more than two weeks you must consult your doctor. The only point of consideration is clots in these veins. However the clots make them painful. So if there is pain then also consult your doctor. Do not fiddle with it. Leave it alone. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examination.
If you have seen a urologist and they find a large varicocele ie varicose veins of your testicles then you can have surgery to remove them and sometimes (50%) this improves your motility. I suggest also taking antioxidants like Vitamin A, C, E, Selenium and Zinc and taking L-carnitine and sometimes this improves your count. This is available in something called FertiltiyBlend for Men website: www.fertilityblend.
Varicocele is a abnormal distention of veins draining one of testicles, analogous to varicose veins in legs; symptoms are swelling, which disappears when lying down, and a dragging pain, especially in hot weather or after exercise. This is treated by ligating the vein surrounding the testicle in the scrotum. Hydrocele is a collection of serous fluid that results from a defect or irritation in the tunica vaginalis of the scrotum. It is a painless swelling.
(background information) Two weeks ago I had the procedure done on bilateral varicoceles. the radiologist said it was completely successful. I am confident that the procedure was successful because to my amazement, since the procedure was done both my testicles experienced roughly a 10% increase in size. prior to the procedure I had a grade2-3 varicocele on the left side and a grade2 varicocele on the right side.

then the doctor told him to do ultra sound their was Varicose veins on the left side But the doctor said their is no need of surgery because the Varicose vein is light and the hormones are normal ,then he did Biopsy to see whether or not the testicles are working or not .or if he got blockage . it come out that every thing is normal no blockage and the testis are working . but i still want to know why their is no sperm in his ejaculation .
It could be a varicocele (varicose vein). And varicose veins can develop clots. Also, twists can happen, called a testicular torsion. This is an emergency type problem, and I think the pain would have sent you to the emergency room. But a urologist is the best doctor to see. He can assess you for varicocele or epididymitis and reassure you about testicular torsion not being the problem. But honestly I think tight muscles could be just irritating the nerves additionally.

I feel I need a second opinion as I still get pain around the back of my testicle where the tubes connect, after his examination for varicose veins he said as above there was nothing he could do. The pain comes on after nothing at all, no walking, running or even moving, I could just be lying in bed. What do you think?
Few of the common causes of such lumps are Epididymitis, Orchitis, inguinal hernia, which may be mistaken for a testicle lump, mumps, scrotal sac infection, Spermatocele which is a cyst in the scrotum or a varicocoele due to varicose veins in the scrotum.or testicular cancer. As you said it is present since a year and has been increasing in size so testicular injury and torsion are completely ruled out. There are high chances that it could be a varicocoele or a spermatocoele.
