Treatment of Scrotal Varicocele in Men

What is a Varicocele?

The term varicocele refers to an enlargement of the veins in the scrotum (the ball-sac or the pouch of skin that contains the testicles). A scrotal varicocele is similar to varicose veins in the leg. It occurs due to defective valves in the veins leading to the backing up of blood and dilatation of the veins.  Scrotal varicoceles are dilated veins that have lost their natural one-way flow mechanism; this allows blood to pool in the scrotum.

Varicocele is one of the most common treatable causes of male infertility because it leads to low sperm count and poor sperm quality. Men with varicocele have been found to have significantly lower levels of testosterone. Some men with scrotal varicoceles experience discomfort and pain in the testicle.  Treatment of this condition with a procedure called varicocelectomy results in considerable improvement in symptoms and semen parameters.

Why Do Men Get Varicoceles?

There are no dietary or behavioral activities that predispose a man to varicocele. It appears that some men have a predisposition to developing enlarged veins in the scrotum, which typically occurs either during adolescence or young adulthood. Strenuous activities that place pressure on the abdominal area may be a risk factor for scrotal varicocele, but most men who engage in weightlifting and other strenuous activities do not develop clinical varicoceles.  Varicoceles are caused by the failure of valves in veins to function properly. This is most commonly caused by excessive intra-abdominal pressure; in many cases, the cause is not clear.

What Are the Symptoms of a Varicocele?

The complex relationship between scrotal varicoceles and testicular pain.

Oftentimes, men with varicoceles have no symptoms at all and remain unaware that they have this condition. If symptoms are present, they usually consist of a dull ache or heavy feeling in the scrotum, which is typically worse after physical exertion or in hot weather and is relieved by lying down on the back. Varicoceles are more common on the left side. Dilated veins may be visible or palpable on the scrotum. The twisted and swollen veins in the testicular area feel similar to a bag of worms.

Most of the time, varicoceles cause no symptoms and are detected only incidentally during a physical exam. Sometimes varicoceles may cause scrotal aches, discomfort, and testicular pain. Many men describe the pain as discomfort that is worse when standing up, walking, or working out and relieved lying down.   Varicoceles may also cause infertility in a minority of men and occasionally prevent testis from growing normally in adolescent men (teenagers).  Scrotal varicoceles can also lead to low testosterone levels or hypogonadism.

What Can Varicoceles Be Mistaken For? How is Varicocele Diagnosed?

Varicoceles can sometimes be mistaken for inguinal hernia, hydrocele, or testicular mass.  Experienced urologists can usually make a diagnosis on physical examination. A color duplex ultrasound can confirm the diagnosis.

Should I Worry If I Have a Varicocele?

Varicocele is a common condition. It is more frequently seen in younger males between 15 and 25 years old. Depending on how one defines the diagnosis, as many as 40 percent of men may be found to have a scrotal varicocele. On ultrasound examination, many men have a scrotal varicocele; however, only some of them will have a palpable or visible enlargement of the veins.  Traditionally only varicoceles that can be palpated on the physical exam are treated; sometimes, varicoceles that are not easily palpable but visible on ultrasound may require treatment.

Most varicoceles do not cause symptoms. In adolescent boys, this condition can impair testicular growth, and if that happens, varicocelectomy should be performed, which usually leads to catch-up growth of the smaller testicle.

In adult males, varicoceles can lead to infertility and impaired semen parameters. Some men with varicoceles experience low testosterone levels. Varicocelectomy can improve testosterone levels by an average of 150 points in most men with a clinically palpable varicocele. Some men with palpable varicocele experience scrotal pain, ache, and discomfort that typically lasts for more than 3 months and is worse with exertion.

Who Needs Treatment for Varicoceles?

  • Men and adolescent boys with symptoms often require treatment.
  • Men and boys with chronic scrotal pain and discomfort caused by varicoceles can be effectively treated with microscopic varicocelectomy.
  • Men with low testosterone levels and obviously large varicoceles can often be treated effectively with microscopic varicocelectomy which offers leads to increased testosterone levels.
  • Men who have suboptimal semen parameters and varicoceles may benefit from varicocele repair.
  • Teenage and adolescent boys with varicocele causing decreased testicular growth often benefit from varicocele repair.

Treatment Options for Scrotal Varicoceles in Men: When Do Varicoceles Need to be Treated?

Conservative Measures: There are no medications that can make a varicocele go away. In obese men, weight loss may decrease the severity of the varicocele and improve pain symptoms. Compression and scrotal elevation with a jockstrap or similar device may help alleviate symptoms to some degree, but this is not a reliable, sustainable, or definitive treatment for varicocele. Observation will typically lead to no improvement or worsening of varicocele symptoms.

Surgery vs. Embolization: Treatment options for scrotal varicoceles include varicocelectomy and embolization. There are multiple approaches to the surgical treatment of varicocele in men, including microscopic, laparoscopic, open, and robotic varicocele repair. Studies have shown that the most effective treatment option for varicocele repair is microscopic varicocelectomy, which provides the least invasive treatment option with fast recovery and the least risk of complications.

Our Approach to Treatment: We perform microscopic varicocelectomy at New York Urology Specialists.

Treatment of Scrotal Pain Due To Varicocele

Left-sided varicocele is the most common. Some men present with a palpable left varicocele and nonpalpable small right varicocele that is discovered incidentally on the scrotal color Doppler ultrasound. If pain is only present on the left side, there is no need to treat the right side. Some men, however, experience pain on both sides, typically worse on the left side. We have found that most of the time when there is a subclinical right varicocele and predominantly left-sided pain, correction of the clinically significant left varicocele leads to resolution of the right-sided pain as well.

Advantages of Microscopic Varicocelectomy

The main advantage of microscopic varicocelectomy is the ability to effectively treat all sources of the varicocele, including varicose veins originating in the gubernaculum, which cannot be treated through embolization. Microscopic varicocelectomy is associated with a greater than 95 percent success rate in effectively treating scrotal varicocele. It is also associated with the lowest rate of hydrocele formation (less than 5-6 percent). The advantages of microscopic varicocelectomy performed through a subinguinal incision include quick recovery and absence of the risks of laparoscopy, including injury to the bowel and adhesions.

How Soon After Varicocele Repair for Testicular Pain Can a Patient Experience Improvement in Pain?

Most men experience pain resolution shortly after the procedure.  Most men have some scrotal discomfort related to surgery for the first few weeks after surgery.  Most men who benefit from microscopic varicocelectomy surgery will experience relief from scrotal pain within the first 4-6 weeks after surgery.

Preparation for Varicocele Repair (Varicocelectomy)

We usually perform microscopic varicocelectomy in a surgical center or hospital. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia.

Diet: Patients need to fast for at least 8 hours prior to the surgery.  After the procedure, patients may resume a regular diet.

Medications: Patients are advised to inform the urologist about all the prescription and OTC medications they take. On the morning of the procedure, all medications (except blood thinners) should be taken with a small sip of water. The urologist will discuss if and when blood thinners (Coumadin) need to be stopped in preparation for the surgery.

Shaving: We do not advise patients to shave at home prior to the procedure. If needed, we will shave you in the operating suite. This minimizes the risk of infection.

What to Expect After Varicocele Repair?

Recovery from varicocele repair is fairly quick and relatively painless. Some mild pain or discomfort and slight bruising and swelling of the scrotum may be present. These signs and symptoms typically disappear completely in 3-4 weeks.

Wound Care: No special wound care is needed. We use resorbable stitches, which are typically absorbed within 3-4 weeks of the procedure. If scrotal swelling is present, it typically goes away 3-4 weeks after microscopic varicocelectomy. Scrotal support is advised for the first 2-3 weeks after varicocele repair.

Activity: We advise patients to avoid strenuous activities, such as weightlifting or running, for 3 weeks after the procedure; after that, activities can be resumed as tolerated.

Return to Work: Patients can usually return to work and their normal routine 2-3 days after microscopic surgery.

Showering: Patients may shower the same day after the procedure. 

Beach and Swimming: Patients may go to the beach or swimming 2 weeks after the procedure, as long as the incision is healing well. 

Sex After Varicocele Repair: We advise no sexual activity for 3 weeks after microscopic varicocelectomy.

Common Risks and Complications of Varicocelectomy

In general, microscopic varicocelectomy has an excellent safety profile. As with any surgical procedure, there are small risks associated with the surgery.

Infection and Hematoma: Microscopic varicocelectomy is associated with a low risk of infection (less than 1 percent) and low risk of bleeding or hematoma (less than 3-5 percent).

Recurrence: The success rate of microscopic varicocelectomy is greater than 95 percent, with a less than 5 percent risk of recurrence. 

Infertility: There is a small risk of infertility due to injury to the vas deferens, but this is very rare (occurs in less than 1 percent of patients). Our highly experienced surgeons at New York Urology Specialists take extreme care to identify and preserve the vas deferens and the testicular artery and protect these structures from injury during the surgery. 

Hydrocele: Less than 5-6 percent of men develop a clinically significant hydrocele after varicocele repair.

100% perfect circumcision
by on Jan 21, 2021

Dr. Shteynshlyuger did what I would call an 100% perfect circumcision on me. I can’t even find my scar. He cut the precise right amount of skin. I now feel extremely happy, confident, and proud of how it looks. I am 100% satisfied with my results and I would recommend him to any guy seeking an adult circumcision. I healed in 5.5 weeks but his recommendation is 6 weeks to heal so that means zero “activity” for 6 weeks to avoid damaging the stitching. The surgical glue I pulled off at 5.5 weeks. It is important to not remove it before! The lower posterior of my shaft did not look good at first, especially w/ the surgical glue on it, but over weeks it looked better and better w/ the final results by 5.5-6 weeks being excellent When the doctor injected the anesthetic, it was painful since he must inject it deep ~6-8times. During the surgery my discomfort was maybe a 1/10, so tolerable. Make sure to buy lots of bandages/gauze before/after for daily change for 5-6 weeks

finally able to enjoy life again
by on Dec 16, 2020

Dr. Alex absolutely changed my life and restored my faith in doctors. When my condition first started I saw four different urologists over a period of about 6 months. All four either laughed me out of their office saying there’s nothing they could do to help, that my pain was normal, or prescribed me something that did not help or made everything worse. I prepared to live my life (22 years old now) with chronic pain that made participating in every day activities extremely difficult. Finally after getting the courage to start looking for new doctors again I found Dr. Alex Shteynshlyuger and decided to give his office a call. I proceeded to see him shortly after my call, and now a few visits and months later I am finally able to enjoy life again. Dr. Alex took the time to do the tests that other doctors did not even mention. He took different approaches, gave well explained answers to all of my questions, and made me feel like there are some doctors who really do care. On top of all of that he has some of the most helpful and kind staff I have come across. I cannot stress enough how thankful I am for Dr. Alex!

highly qualified diagnostician
by on Sep 23, 2020

I have been observed by Dr. Alex for many years and I must say that he is a highly qualified diagnostician, and also several times I have received qualified microsurgical assistance and very useful advice. The only reason I put 4 with a plus is a somewhat long wait for the reception.

Overall, it was a good experience. Dr. Shteynshlyuger (Dr. Alex) was very nice, warm and helpful. He performed a Shang Ring circumcision for me and the procedure went well. I'm pleased with the results and there were no complications. If anyone is interested in the shang ring circumcision in the tristate area, then I'd recommend him. The whole procedure is $1850, which includes the initial consultation (provided that ther are no complications) and every follow up visit up to six months.

Care at NY Urology Specialists
by on Jul 06, 2019

I am a 54 year-old male who is extremely happy with my care at New York Urology Specialists. I came to see Dr. Alex out of near desperation after consulting with three other urologists. Literally over one night, I began experiencing severe penile pain and burning. None of the other urologists were able to help diagnose what my problem was and seemingly didn't take my problem very seriously. In fact, one of them specifically told me at it had nothing to do with my prostate. After 6 weeks of suffering, I saw Dr. Alex. He examined me and gave me some tests and lab work. He very quickly ascertained that my problem was due to an enlarged prostate. He proscribed medicine to deal with my pain in the short-term and keep my prostate size in check over the long-term. My problem quickly disappeared. Today, 5 years later, I feel great. Dr, Alex listens to you as a patient, takes your opinion and health concerns seriously and knows his field inside-and-out so that you can get proper treatment for your problem. I can't thank him enough for diagnosing and solving my malady - you sometimes can't appreciate a problem until you have it. Getting rid of it and getting back to normal is so important - I am so glad that I saw Dr. Alex for my problem.

Highly grateful
by on Jun 18, 2019

Dr. Shteynshlyuger is a very patient, understanding and caring doctor. I came to take opinion on my father’s treatment going on in my home country. Highly satisfied from his responses. He even responded to so many of my queries through patient portal . Highly grateful.

Hello, I wanted to simply thank you for your help. My condition has improved. I saw my regular Urologist yesterday and he agreed with everything you said. I am most appreciative of the speed and efficiency with which I was able to see you. I will be using the cream for another 2-3 weeks and hopefully that will be the end of my trouble. However, if not you can be assured that I will visit your practice again. Thank you for seeing me yesterday. In many ways my mind was put at ease. The operation is very efficient and professional.

Good Dr. who cares about his patients
by on Aug 18, 2017

Received circumcision from Dr. Shteynshlyuger. Dr. Shteynshlyuger is a very good specialist who cares for his patients. He was always concerned with my physical and mental comfort prior, during and post-operation. Dr. Alex is very thorough in his work to assess any problems and provide the necessary solution. Being that he has recently moved to a new location, this may afford for speedier appointments and easier flow of patients in and out. In addition, more personal space for waiting patients. If there was any con, it would be, the lack of space at his prior office and being able to see his patients at the appointed time, but a necessary sacrifice for good, careful work. I would recommend him as a very good doctor.

" He found my source of testicular pain that was missed by a Urologist from my insurance provider. Although I paid to go out of network- any price is less than testicular pain. He is generous with his time and will not short change anyone for care." via Posted on June 4th, 2017
