My GP tested my urine, no std.. But I was given 7 days antibiotic course.. Actually for my back pain, I have done MRI already.. There was nothing wrong.. But I still experiencing this dragging pain inside my left scrotum and aching lower back pain whenever I stand or sit for about one hour.. That's why I'm wondering this varicocele is causing my back pain..
Varicocele causes an aching pain when you have been standing or sitting for an extended time and pressure builds up in the affected veins. But this causes pain in scrotal sacs and not the back unless and until there is compression of spinal nerves. Back pain can be associated with spinal causes of kidney or ureteric causes like infections.
In my opinion you should get it checked from a urologist.
I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Thks for your reply. I have already done MRI scan on my lower spine. The doctor said, everything is fine. May be it has something to do with my kidney.
I have another question regarding varicocele. I'm going to see urologist in 3 weeks time. But i want to find out more about more before I see him. Is that possible to have varicose veins underneath the testis? Coz in my sac, this noodle like things are mostly under my testis.
Actually I'm quite worried about the testicular cancer. I read advanced stage testicular cancer causes lower back pain coz it's pressing something(?) there. But from my self diagnosis, i dont have any lump or bump on the testis itself except those dilated veins.
Hello in fact I had a done a varicocele surgery, it was a day surgery and not much pain. After surgery the pain in the scrotum is relieved a bit, and there is less vericose veins in my left scrotum now. But the dragging heaviness in scrotal is not totally gone, cos i can touch there are still some dilated veins inside especially underneath my left testis. I'm trying to live with the pain now.
For back pain, I try to eat more fruits and vegetable to have regular motion passing and it really help to relieve a back pain. And also I go for swimming which is known to relieve back pain. Hope this help..
