Varicocele rarely produces any symptoms. It goes unnoticed most of the time until noticed during a self-exam or routine physical exam by the doctor. Rarely, varicocele might cause pain, and the pain may:
⦁ Range from sharp to dull uneasiness
⦁ Deteriorate over a day
⦁ Increase with standing or heavy work, particularly over an extended duration
⦁ Be relieved while lying in the back position
Gradually, varicoceles may widen and become more visible. The condition may result in a swollen testicle, mainly on the left side.
