Hydrocele is a fluid sac which surrounds and oppress the testicles and lowers the bloods circulation in the testes. Although hydrocele is usually painless and cause no health-related consequences, sometimes it can lead to sexual dysfunction and infertility; therefore, it needs to be treated as soon as it is diagnosed.
The function of the testes is to make sperm (male sex cells) and produce male hormones such as testosterone. Testicles are very sensitive to temperature and may seriously be damaged or probably lose their efficiency permanently in case of being exposed to high temperature or even body temperature (37 degrees Celsius).
Varicocele occurs when the one-way valves in the veins do not function properly and cause blood to flow backward into the testicle due to the dilation of testicular veins and scrotal cord. The blood entering the testicles contains respiratory waste products. Therefore, varicocele can cause increased waste products in the testicle, increased testicular temperature, and sperm disorders in men.
Varicocele is one of the most common testicular disorders in men. It is associated with abnormal enlargement and twisting of the veins above the testicle. This condition may not usually cause male infertility. However, in some cases, it causes an increased testicular temperature that reduces the quantity and quality of sperm and will lead to male infertility.
Varicocele is one of the most common testicular conditions that makes the veins above the testes (in the scrotum) enlarged and varicose. A grade 3 varicocele, the most severe type, causes severe testicular pain. In a grade 3 varicocele, the testicular veins are easily visible.
Male infertility accounts for about 40 to 50 percent of all infertility problems. This problem affects about 7% of men and is usually due to defects in semen as well as semen quality.
Varicocele surgery, also called varicocelectomy and varicose vein surgery, is a surgical procedure through which the swollen part of a damaged vessel in scrotum is cut off so that the blood can flow just as normal in the reproductive organs.
One of the most common causes of male infertility is the abnormal enlargement of the veins above the testicles, commonly known as varicocele. In a varicocele, the veins of the scrotum swell and cause pain and discomfort.
