Hi doctor,

I am 23 years old. I am attaching my USG report, which I had two months before. Is my testicle size normal? Please give me correct answer as I need to go for a medical examination next month. Can I pass the medical exam? I am also attaching medical pro forma. Thank you.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I had gone through all the data posted (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • The size of the testicle is normal, but there is a mild hydrocele (swollen scrotumand left side grade 1 varicocele.
  • The pro forma you have submitted shows that they will examine your genitals, but they did not mention that the presence of these will make you disqualify.
  • Varicocele and hydrocele both can be operated. You can consult a general surgeon regarding the possibility of surgery if hydrocele is large.
  • Varicocele even if minimal may be operated because some present with infertility.

Thank you doctor,

I had Hetrazan 100 thrice daily for hydrocele and varicocele for one month. Now, I do not have pain, but dragging sensation at the left lower side of the abdomen and pelvis area. Will testicle size decrease with age? Can varicocele increase with age? Should I go for varicocelectomy surgery for grade 1? Please clarify.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Hard strenuous work and already existing dilated pampiniform plexus of veins may lead to grade three varicocele.
  • With the problem with varicocele there are theories relating to infertility. So, according to those theories the sooner patients are operated it is better.
