A varicocele is a bulge around the scrotum caused by swollen veins. Don’t be embarrassed! It is important to get any swelling around your testicle checked out by your doctor. A varicocele can cause fertility problems and some patients need an operation to fix them.

This is the Teenage Varicocele Association website. Our mission is to supply reliable and balanced information to teenagers and parents of teenagers with varicoceles.
