What is Varicocele Embolization?
Varicocele embolization is a type of medical procedure. It diverts blood away from an enlarged vein in your scrotum. Such a vein is called a varicocele. It can cause pain, infertility, and swelling. A radiologist uses a coil or special agents to block (or embolize) the vein.
Who Is a Candidate for Varicocele Embolization?
If you prefer a minimally invasive treatment option, speak with your doctor about varicocele embolization, you may be a candidate for varicocele embolization if you are an adult male and have been diagnosed with a varicocele that is causing you testicular pain, discomfort or infertility. Make sure to discuss all varicocele treatment options with your general practitioner or family physician.
