A varicocele is mass of enlarged and swollen veins in the testicle that essentially feels like a bag of worms.
Surgery or no surgery?
Boston Children's Hospital physicians make a diagnosis based on whether your son is having any pain associated with the varicocele.
If your son is experiencing pain, your Children's urologist will recommend a simple, outpatient surgical procedure.
If there's no pain, your urologist may recommend nothing more than annual ultrasounds to ensure your son's testicle is growing normally. However, a current study at Children's is examining which approach is better in adolescents: immediate surgery for the varicocele, or with the option of surgery after a waiting period.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them.
