It is estimated that as many as 15 percent of males have a Varicocele, including 40 percent of the men experiencing infertility issues. If you have a Varicocele, you should know what happens if you don’t get Varicocele treatment.

Symptoms of Varicoceles

You may experice varicocele symptoms and sometime you don’t feel any symptom of varicocele, however varicocele depends on many factors. Some men don’t feel testicular pain but they are diagnosed with Varicoceles.

Varicocele symptoms may include:

  • Pain in the scrotum — From a dull ache to a sharp, stabbing pain
  • Testicular atrophy — The shrinking of one or both testicles.
  • A lump in the scrotum or testicle — Typically, the lump is not painful
  • Enlargement of a testicle — The swollen side will feel heavy
  • If you lie down on your back, you may feel less.

Without a proper Varicocele diagnosis and treatment, these symptoms may worsen and lead to further complications.

Possible Complications If You Don’t Get Varicocele Treatment

If you don’t seek treatment for your Varicocele, it can damage the affected testicle. In about 85 percent of men, the Varicocele occurs on the left side. Testicle may shrink due to varicocele. It’s unclear why this happens, but a Varicocele is basically a testicular varicose vein, like many people get in their legs. Just like leg varicose veins, a Varicocele is linked to malfunctioning valves.

For the purpose of oxygenation, veins send the blood to the heart and work against the gravitational force.

To assist in this process, the veins have valves built into their walls that open and close as needed. Veins contract to push the blood upwards resulting the opening of the valves. During When the muscles relaxation, the valves close again to keep the blood from flowing backward.

Over the time, the valves may not open and close normally, due to which blood pooling happens. There can be various factors responsible to it, but it is a natural consequence of aging. Due to old age, the walls of the veins start losing their elasticity. The weakness in the vein wall means there is less pressure on the valves so they don’t close completely and blood pools between muscle contractions. The pooling blood around the testicle increases the pressure, which may cause the shrinkage.

Infertility is another strong possibility for those who don’t get Varicocele treatment. Untreated Varicoceles of large veins can cause overheating, can reduce the sperm count, mobility, and quality of the sperm as well.

Men who are infertile and diagnosed with Varicoceles often have low testosterone levels, too. Medical study shows that men who got Varicoceles treatment saw increment in their testosterone levels as a result because Leydig cells begin to function properly once again.
