Benefits Of Varicocele Treatment –Rathimed Fertility
Our doctors will conduct a physical exam, which might reveal a non tender mass above your testicle which you may feel like a bag of worms. If it's large enough, our doctor will be able to feel it. If you have a smaller varicocele, our doctor might ask you to stand, take a deep breath and hold it while you bear down (Valsalvamaneuver). This helps our doctor identify abnormal enlargement of the veins.
If the physical exam is unsatisfying, we might order a scrotal ultrasound. This test, which uses high-frequency sound waves to generate precise images of structures inside your body, might be used to guarantee there isn't another reason for your symptoms. In certain cases, further imaging might be suggested to rule out other causes for the varicocele, such as a tumor compressing the spermatic vein
