A varicoceles is a collection of enlarged veins within the scrotum. It may begin to cause reproductive issues if the valves within the testes cause blood to pool within the scrotum. This pooling of blood affects the circulation and temperature of the testes, leading to decreased motility and poor morphology. As many as 15% of the general population have a varicoceles. If large, it may cause discomfort but often there are no symptoms.
A varicocelectomy is a procedure to remedy enlarged veins. It involves a microsurgical procedure in which swollen veins are tied off while preserving the normal blood vessels. Varicocelectomy is a highly successful procedure and can result in a spontaneous (natural) pregnancy.
