What is the testicular varicocele?
Testicular varicocele is a collection of blood in a complex of testicular veins in the most severe cases an operation is necessary. The testes are the male gonads responsible for the creation and ripening of sperm. Testicular semen and seminal fluid become part of the seminal vesicles (when the composition of sperm is supplemented with the addition of new substances) and from there to the urethra through the penis leaves.
Like all living organs, the testes must consist of a vascular system of veins and arteries. This vascular system, particularly the venous system, forms a plexus or network called plexus pampiniform feeding nourishes and oxygen to the testes and rudimentary tubules.
Varicocele is an extension of this pampiniform plexus into a mass or a lump in one or both testes of men. Also, similar to veins that occur on the legs of the women’s varicose veins.

The former refers to the absence of venous valves in the left testicular vein allowing venous reflux formed varicose veins that exist what we call varicocele.
A second theory refers to the length of the left testicular vein when opened up in the left renal vein, is longer and therefore higher, causing more difficulty passing through the blood venous, which can cause the varicocele.
A third theory is the compression of the left testicular vein by superior mesenteric and abdominal aorta. This situation causes a more significant problem for the venous return of the remaining sperm. This is one of the possible causes of the increased frequency of varicocele in the left testicle.
