someone please help! is this varicocele?
I discovered this single vein at the end of my right testicle by chance in shower a few days ago, so I don't know how long it has been here. It seems to be rather thin and runs horizontally with a tip at about the middle of the testicle's side. I believe it is a vein by its shape and since I can see a faint green at the area (if the testicle rolls, the color moves too). From what I read off the internet, varicocele is a group of veins and generally occurs on the left testicle, or at least both. But in my case, I can only feel a single vein on the right. I can't really tell if the epididymis is bigger on one side or not. Can someone with varicocele experience or knowledge please tell me if this is varicocele? Also, my penis has been bent to the right ever since 7, 8 years ago and my right testicle hangs lower than the left, so I am wondering if this could simply be an abnormal growth? And a further question just in case if this is varicocele: Can varicocele be cured through diet and herbs? Or is the blood vessle permanently dead? Someone please, pleease respond, thanks.
