What is a varicocele?

Varicocele represents the most common cause of male factor infertility, as it accounts for around 25% of cases. Varicocele is a clinical condition characterized by the presence of varicose (enlarged) veins around the testicles. The condition is more common on the left than on the right testicle, although both testicles can be affected. It is still debated how the varicocele causes infertility but it is suggested that the increase in temperature and presence of toxic metabolites, which stagnate in the varicose veins around the testicle, can potentially damage the testicle leading to deterioration in quality of the sperm.
