Varicocele- Is it a threat to male fertility
Varicocele is Dilated venous channels in testis
Varicocele is an abnormal & tortuous dilatation of the veins of the pampiniform plexus of the spermatic cord and is most commonly diagnosed by physical exam, (feeling of a bag of worms) or colour duplex Doppler ultrasound (where vein measurement and blood flow patterns are observed).
Varicocele rarely becomes clinically evident before early adolescence. Once present, they are not thought to regress.
