Varicoceles and male infertility
A varicocele is a varicose vein or enlarged long vein in the testicle and scrotum that can lead to testicular shrinkage and atrophy and can also cause pain, swelling and infertility. Varicoceles are seen in approximately 10 percent of men and are found mostly in men ages 15-35.
We use advanced imaging technology to treat the enlarged vein, using a procedure called varicocele embolization.
