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.
Symptoms of Varicocele:
- 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.
Why should choose for Homeopathy Treatment?
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.
If Ignored Where the disease may lead the patient to?
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.
Frequently Asked Questions
How can varicocele be detected?
If you have a smaller varicocele, your doctor may ask you to stand, take a deep breath and hold it while you bear down (Valsalva maneuver). This helps your doctor detect abnormal enlargement of the veins. If the physical exam is inconclusive, your doctor may order a scrotal ultrasound.
Why does varicocele happen?
This is because a guy’s body is organized so that blood flow on that side of the scrotum is greater, so varicoceles happen more often in the left testicle than the right. Although it’s less common, they can sometimes happen on both sides.
