FAQs for Varicocele

1. Which doctor should be consulted if I have a varicocele?

You should seek a consult with Urologist.

2. Can a varicocele occur in adolescents?

A varicocele usually affects people of the 18-30 age group, though it can affect people beyond the age of thirty-five also.

3. Does a person undergoing varicocelctomy have to have his testis removed?

Though it was advocated in the earlier days, it is not done only if the testis is highly atrophied or non-functional.

4. Which doctor should I go to in order to treat my varicocele?

You could see an urologist or a general surgeon.

5. How long after a varicocelectomy would my sperm count return to normal levels?

It may happen in a couple of months, but sometimes it may not happen at all if the testis has been rendered completely non functional by the long standing varicocele.

Varicocele repair surgery is generally covered by most insurance policies. You can generally find a surgeon in your area that can perform outpatient surgery.
