Varicocele pain

I am suffering from varicocele pain in left testicle and abdomen from two years. Incident started after i did some workout in gym. Diagnosed with mild varicocele in left testicle. Then after months of Patience it went away. Started lite exercises and it came back. Now i am highly depressed as i cannot do exercises sports activities. As of no activity my stomach gets upset very easily. walking for long duration causes slight discomfort. I am looking forward for surgery. Is it safe?? Will it remove my pain?? What kind of surgery should i go for??

Hello there...... Varicocele treatment may not be necessary. However, if your varicocele causes pain, testicular atrophy or infertility you may want to undergo varicocele repair... Treatment options include open surgery, laparoscopic surgery and percutaneous embolization.....Consult your Urologist for further advice and treatment.....
