A varicocele is an enlargement of the veins within the loose bag of skin that holds your testicles. Varicocele can sometimes lead to low sperm count and decreased sperm quality, which in turn causes infertility. However, not all varicoceles affect sperm production. Fortunately, it is easy to diagnose and many don’t need treatment.
- Visibly enlarged vein near the scrotum
- Aching pain in the scrotum
- Feeling of heaviness in the testicles
- Shrinking of the testicles
- Alteration of testosterone levels
If a varicocele causes symptoms, it can be treated surgically. The purpose of surgery is to seal of the affected vein and redirect the blood flow into other healthy veins. Surgical options include: Open surgery, Laparoscopic surgery, and Percutaneous embolization. Varicocele repair poses few risks like buildup of fluid around the testicles, infection, and damage to an artery.
Homeopathic medicines on the other hand are natural, safe and have no side effects on the scrotum. Homeopathic medicines stimulate the disease fighting mechanism of the body and act at the root to stop recurrence of the health condition. The most widely recommended Homeopathic medicines for varicocele are
- Rhus Toxicodendron
- Nux Vomica
However, it is advised to not take any homeopathic remedy without consulting a certified homeopathic practitioner.
The varicocele if left untreated for a longer duration then, the pain that was dull aching in the initial stages of the disease will get worsened.
