My 12 yr old son was referred to a pediatric urology by his pediatrician for a large vein on his scrotum that she called a varicose vein that could cause problems with fertility "later on".
So we went to the urologist and he wasn't concerned with the surface vein on the scrotum, but said there was a vein inside that was enclosing the left testicle and that he wanted to do surgery.
Well, after coming home and doing some internet searching, I'm not sure about surgery now.
So, I was wondering if any one you had gone through this with your son/husband/SO and what did they do?
Some things I read say that the varicocele may not ever cause a problem and if it does cause trouble with fertility, to have the surgery then.
So, since he's only 12, we won't be dealing with that for awhile. I'm so wishy-washy on things, I never can make up my mind. I tend to overanalyze everything and then don't know what to do.
I just wanted to see if anyone else had gone through the surgery and the outcome, or anyone that opted to not have the surgery and the outcome.
Any advice/input is greatly appreciated.
