What Is a Varicocele?

A varicocele is an abnormal enlargement of veins in the scrotum which drain the testicle. For anatomic reasons, it most commonly occurs on the left side but may occur on the right or on both sides. It is present in up to 15 percent of the entire male population in the US. However, it is more common in men with difficulty conceiving, in whom up to 40 percent will have a varicocele.
