I am Dr Ken and I will be helping you today
Can you give me ultrasound report?
Do you have any associated symptoms apart from dull pulling sensation or pain?
I do understand your anxiety. Please calm down. Let me explain it.
Testis and epididymis are surrounded by multiple small venous channels.
my report says it has multiple dilated veins of 2-3mm and has a reversal of flow when valsalva maneur is done
These veins or channels have small valves within them which avoids blood to accumulate within them.
all others are normal it says
These valves may get damaged causing stagnant blood within these channels.
The normal size of these veins is less than 2 mm. On Valsalva there is no reversal.
In many individuals the size may be as large as 4 mm. Reversal indicates Variecocele.
I would worry if the diameter of these channels increase more than 5 mm OR
if there is thrombosis of the channels.
This leads to abnormal blood flow to the testis leading to
can u wait for sometime please
scarring of the testis and this causes reduced sperm production
