varicocele
Um, Well it seems that I may have varicocele on my left testicle, and well I was just wondering if it was harmful at all. I was wondering if it would eventually cause me to become infertile or if it would cause testicular cancer.

Hi,

Whether or not a varicocele causes infertility is a contentious issue.

Varicocele is usually harmless except in cases of infertility. If surgery is required because of infertility or testicular atrophy, the outlook is usually excellent. Removal of varicocele can lead to normal testicular temperatures and an increased sperm production.

Let me know if you need any other information.

Regards.
