Is a vasectomy with a varicocele safe?
I am ready to have a vasectomy but I am nervous because I have a varicocele on the left side. I’ve had it since puberty and it only causes mild discomfort, and did not cause me infertility issues. There does not seem to be much info out there on the risks of vasectomy with a varicocele, but the little I did find was frightening: Stories of chronic pain, loss of testosterone, etc. Are there urologists who specialize in this or would any urologist know how to handle it?
