  1. Varicocele diagnosis?


    How are varicoceles found and diagnosed? Can they always been found by sight or is a scan (MRI, CAT, or other) required to diagnose them?


  2. by ultrasound

  3. Well they are pretty obvious. if your sac feels like a bag of worms, then chances are it's a vericocele. My GP even told me that before he sent me to a uro. And then my uro sent me for an ultrasound to check for atrophy. and my left nut was a couple cm smaller than my right so he recommended surgery.

  4. Can doctors tell by a visual check?

    Yes, Most of the time its visible. To confirm the grade, ultrasound is necessary

    do they only perform surgery for atrophy?

    No. In my experience they are far more likely to recommend you for surgery if you tell them it is causing you lots of pain.

    Probably not, in my case it didn't hurt at all, but my left testicle was atrophied. Told me it would effect my fertility if I didn't have it corrected.

    is atrophied = shrunk?

    How far its atrophied if oyu dont mind to tell?I mean what size.
    My doctor told me to go semen analysis and then decide about surgery.But my wife became pregnant luckily.

  10. will a varicocle cause constant pain?

    I was diagnosed with having a grade 1 or 2 Varicocle, but I hvae a constant pain coming from my testicle, it usually gets worse when I go down to sleep at night and I know varicocles are supposed to get better when you sleep

    Do you have pain in testicle. or pain dues to heavyness caused by varicocele.When you are asleep usually you dont feel varicocele.

    I have a pain in the testicle, it gets worse at night when I lie down, it is probably in addition to the varicocle, I have a feeling it is Orchitis which is inflamation of the testicle

    I think so. its not becos of varicocel. Varicocele doesnt hurt that much.YOu need antibiotics.

    does your varicocle kill your sex drive?

    yes, for few days,after i got varicoceles. Because of poor blood circulation. I could not get any erections and no libido. After I used some herbs for blood flow. I got my sex driveback and erections are good. As information from web says that bilateral varicoceles lead to impotence is not true, atleast in my case.

    so you need to take herbs to get your sex drive? And what about 1 sided varicocles, do those kill the sex drive? Also, did you have veins all over your testicles?

    I have very small on right side. And veins all over on the left one. I took herbs for blood circulation nto for sex drive,but it did improve my libido

  18. god what a Nightmare, I saw a Urologist today and he was terrible, he didnt seem to care about my problems, I guess we are alone in this world and if you have medical problems you just have to deal with it, I have a feeling I am never gonna get an erection agiain and I just have to deal with this pain

    what a ****ing NIGHTMARE

  19. Did herbs help with the PE problem? I haven't taken anything cause i want the doctor to see how bad my condition really is. I think when varicocele happens all of a sudden it lowers free T. The surgery should fix this but i don't know why in my case it didn't work. It's been 4 months now with absolutely no libido and i'm getting used to it, at least it doesn't bother me like it did in the begining.

    did your varicocle come on as a result of an injury


    and how are you able to function in life with no libido, this is like a death sentence to me

    what a ****ing NIGHTMARE
    urologists dont care about our problems. What did he say actually?

  23. Quote Originally Posted by darkblue1 View Post

    he didnt say anything, he went in there asking my generic questions like he was a disgruntled dmv employee

    he also sounded shocked when I told him my varicocle was a result of an injury, he just assumed it was there all along, he didnt even ask my questions

    this guy was absolutely horrible

  24. god what a nightmare, I dont understand how some of you deal with this, I think it may effect me more because of the circumstance surrounding it and how it happened and how I was trying to get my life back on track, also the fact that I am practically a virgin who blew a chance just 2 days before it happened

    I really cant take this anymore, I really think I may kill myself or something, I cant take this pain that keeps coming back in my life, it is un****ing real


    I was holding out hope the Urologist would be some miracle worker and tell me what I want to here or tell me something to make it go away, now I know I am in it for the long haul

    I really cant deal with this

    Dont put hopes on urologists. I lost hope on urologist. WHen i told same thing to my urologist (I got sudden varicoceles), he laughed and said you have this from your birth. Endo also ridiculed me saying that, if he does Ultra sound he may have varicoceles. They are not taking us seriously.pahtetic US healthcare and doctors
