Varicose veins testicles treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Varicose veins testicles treatment


Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar m tn Hi, varicose veins of the testis are referred to as a varicocele. It is the dilatation of the pampiniform venous plexus and the internal spermatic vein. It is known to cause poor sperm production and hence infertility. Based on the size it is classified as small, moderate and large. It is diagnosed with a clinical examination and confirmed by a Doppler ultrasonography. As of now there is no medical therapy for varicocele it is corrected surgically.
1264989 tn?1270057791 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.
Avatar m tn Exactly one month ago and after a period of frecuent (3 times a week) and a bit rough masturbation without lube I realized that I had developed new veins in the penis. Large veins with varicose appearance along the shaft of the penis and many spider veins under the glans and under the urethra (not in the urethra, just below, I have not painful urination or anything like that).
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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?
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar m tn If these are varicose veins, what treatment they need? Can they resolve due time with no other treatment than just gentle care? And the original question again, if these are just normal veins (I actually almost hope they're not..) is it possible to make them smaller by not putting penis under so much stress?

Avatar n tn Hi, Thanks for writing in. A Varicocele is a network of tangled blood vessels (varicose veins) in the scrotum. It is a leading cause of male infertility and may also cause pain and atrophy (shrinkage) of the testicles. Was it embiolization or varicocelectomy that you got done? These days embolization is the most practiced procedure for the treatment of varicoceles, because unlike varicocele surgery, embolization requires no incision, stitches, or general anesthesia.
Avatar f tn No one can figure out where the pain is coming from. I have varicose veins and feel its bein caused by a varicocele. I have a dragging, aching feeling and the pain becomes excruitiating at times. I have had pain develop recently in my pelvis and the shaft of my penis. This problem is really affecting my everyday life.

Avatar n tn is there any other method without surgery like LASER. (Varicose Veins are being treated by laser now) . what about varicocele?what have u done for ur Varicocele? would like your comments email id ***@****. Take Care...
Avatar n tn Testosterone levels are below normal. Additionally, I have substantial growth of varicose cele veins surrounding one testicle. Both testicles are small and/or undeveloped and produce relatively small quantities of semen. I have read much of the available internet material on testicular transplants.
Avatar n tn I hope this helps everyone, please quit smoking and drinking then start thinking of defeating your pain I once consulted a ayurvedic doctor continued his treatment and aftert hat i am using my own treatment by surfng online.
Avatar m tn Examines me and says I have a cyst on my left testicle, and some bulging around by vas deferens that was varicose veins. He also told me to wear supporting underwear . So Over the past 10 years I have been trying to get rid of this pain. Doctors are telling me , the multiple treatments I had in the past should have cleared me up. And that there test show nothing.
Avatar n tn Perhaps the marijuana is out of my system now, but its impact on sperm count, fertility, circulation, varicose veins on my penis/testicles has not resolved itself in my opinion. I feel that these symptoms are the cause of my lower sex drive/innability to consistantly maintain the erections I want to please woman/live life happilly and regain my self worth.
Avatar n tn Piless, regularly called piles, are swollen and inflamed veins in and round the anus and lower rectum. They are far like varicose veins you may see on a person’s legs. Apparently you can get that vibrating feeling from it. Look at below. http://www.naturalremedyhealth.
Avatar n tn Also I have red the best treatment for this is no treatment at all is this also correct? Has anyone had any luck working with a psychologist in relieving these symptoms ?
192055 tn?1263559137 Mega; I too have the varicose veins in the scrotum and the shaft of the penis. They seem to be very noticeable now. Plus, I now have two or three huge veins up the side of my shaft that I didn't have a year ago.
Avatar n tn When flacid, my penis is smaller now. The skin feels different--less sensitive. I see veins where I couldn't see any before. When I walk around, it feels like I don't even have a penis anymore. It feels like nothing is there. As a result of this I have lost my girlfriend, my confidence in life, and I think I am losing my mind. Oral drugs don't help. I've been to urologists at an ivy leage teaching hospital. He basically said 'that's life' and showed me penis pumps.
Avatar m tn Your only evidence diagnosed is the varicose veins. Have you visited a different urologist for a second opinion? You doctor must surely rule out it is not causing the pain. Pain from one side shifting to the other side is a typical symptom of CPSS and Myofascial pain. The pain will be unilateral in constant, however suddenly on a day it will shift from one side to the other side.
Avatar n tn My brother had cysts on his testicles and the doctor operated to remove them. He was still in pain from his testicles and his left abdomen. For two years he was on Percocet. He finally went to a doctor who injected Novocain into the epididymis and scrotum. He has no pain today. I’m experiencing the same thing and after a short run on antibiotic, ultrasound and examination by the urologist I’m going to go and have the same procedure done.
Avatar n tn 9-26-07 Approx. 9 weeks ago I had inguinal hernia repair on the left side. It took me around 4 weeks till I was somewhat pain free. Then came horrible testicle pain, I mean unbearable, and it still persists. I went back to the surgeon and he sent me to a uroligist. It was a week before I could get in to see him so I went to the ER. They took blood, urine, and an ultrasound. I was diagnosed with prostitis, fluid on my testicles and varicose viens & prescribed atibodies & pain meds.
