A surgery that removes swollen veins i.e. varicoceles inside the scrotum is called Varicocelectomy. Varicoceles are small veins located in the scrotum – the pouch of skin where testicles are held. When this pouch becomes enlarged or swollen, it causes pain, and surgery is recommended. Varicoceles are similar to varicose veins. Varicoceles are visible through the skin and carry sperm to the testicles. Varicoceles can also be the cause of infertility in about 40% of men.
