A varicocele is when the vein in the scrotum that drains blood from a testicle becomes enlarged. This is similar to varicose veins in the leg. A varicocele can cause pain, swelling, and affect your fertility. This procedure closes off the enlarged vein without surgery (called ‘embolization’). When the vein is blocked, your body naturally finds other veins to drain blood from the testicle. (English) Colour
