Is there a chance that teenagers will have varicocele?

You often refuse to do this, and you think that having testicular pain and varicose veins are found only in infertile men, and adolescents are no exception, but you should know that having abdominal pain and feeling heavy is not just what Men experience it, infertile men have had this problem since adolescence, due to their lack of pain and discomfort and negligence.

What is varicocele?
Varicocele occurs when the veins of the testicles are large and swollen. This situation is the same as varicose veins in the leg.

When the veins in the testes do not function properly, they can swell. These rods are attached to each testicle. The veins in the rope usually bring blood to the heart. Small ventricles inside the blood vessels keep the blood flow in the right direction. The valves that do not completely shrink allow the blood to flow slowly or remain inside the veins. This volume of blood causes swelling of the veins.

Varicocele often occurs in the left testicle. This may be due to the angle at which the blood enters the kidney veins when it enters the testicular sac, which can cause tachycardia.

Why does varicocele develop in boys?
The veins in the testes may have problems with the vein or lack of it. Teenage boys grow fast, which makes the testicles need more blood. If these veins have the slightest difficulty, they may not be able to quickly convey excess blood.

Other problems with groin anatomy may also increase intracranial pressure and cause swelling. In rare cases, swollen lymph nodes can block the flow of blood in the testicles of the testicles and cause pain.

What are varicocele symptoms in a child?
Most boys do not have any badges. When these occur, symptoms can occur, such as:

Feeling heavy in the testicles that worsens during or after exercise.
Frequent acute pain in testicle sac
A testicle is smaller than another.
Swollen blood vessels that can be felt in the testicles
The signs of varicoceles may be similar to other diseases. Make sure your child is properly diagnosed by a doctor.
The question for parents is how varicocele is diagnosed in a child?
Your doctor will ask you questions about your child's symptoms and history. He will have a clinical examination from your child. Physical examination involves checking the testicle's bag. Your baby may also be under an ultrasound. This is a painless imaging test that uses sound waves to make images of body tissue.

How is varicocele treated in a child?
Treatment depends on the symptoms, age and general health of your baby. Also, the severity of the condition will also affect the choice of treatment type. Treatments that may be used to reduce discomfort or pain include:

Flat lying
Lying down to the back helps the blood flow in the right direction and drain from the testicles.

Use protective clothing from the testicles
This dress may be a sports suit or a drawstring.

Housing
The use of over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen can help relieve discomfort.

Varicoseal in adolescents usually does not require treatment unless the size of the testicles is different or your child has a lot of pain. Treatment may include surgery or other methods for removing or blocking varicose veins. If the testicles are very different in size, the doctor may suggest surgery. In adolescence, surgery can restore the proper blood flow to the testes and help maintain fertility.

What are the possible side effects of varicocele in a child?
There is almost no possibility of a child having more serious problems, however, some varicoceles can inhibit testicular growth and, if not treated, may lead to fertility problems, and affect the ability of the sperm to move to the egg. (Reduced sperm motility).

When should you go to a doctor for your child's problem?
If your child has symptoms that do not improve their health and symptoms get worse, also try to refer to their doctor if they have new symptoms.
