Hi, I am about to turn 18 in a few weeks, I've had a moderate varicocele in my left testies for around 8-6 months now, and it is starting to ache a little bit now and my left testies feels heavier then the right. I am concerned if this varicocele will shrink my testicles if i leave the varicocele alone, and how much will it shrink my testicles? If my tests are shrunken, and I remove the varicocle will my testicles grow back to its normal size? Also will this varicocele grow bigger? How do i know the maximum size it'll grow into or if the size of the one i have now is fully grown? If surgically removed or embolizationed will it still grow back? if it does how does it grow back and what makes it grow back? What should i do to prevent my testicles from shrinking from the varicocele? Will this varicocele effect the feeling of orgasm? will it make me feel less pleasure when i have sex? Will varicocele reduce my testerones and lower my sex drive?
Should i get it removed? if so what treatment should i get? and if i do get it surgically or embolization , how big will the scar be and where? Thanks,
Lots of questions, yeah im just very worried.
Any answers and advise would be greatly apprieciated, thanks a lot guys.
