Had ultrasound. Problem in vessels in testicles. Normal? Infertility? Operation?

I made an ultrasound and the urolog told me that I have a problem with one of my vessels in my testicles and that can affect the quality of my sperms. Hence, he wants that I make an exam to check my quality sperms. I'm worried and inwoul like to know what is the probability to be infertile or it's just a normal problem that can be solve with an operation. Thanks in advance.

Hello, First of all could you tell us the exact ultrasound report. A blood vessel problem commonly means a varicocoele, but there could be other causes as well.
If it is a varicocoele (enlarged veins around the testis), there is a slightly higher chance of the condition affecting the sperms (does not mean everyone with a varicocoele has an abnormal sperm). It is advisable to get a semen analysis done to see what is the state of the semen and then decide on the further treatment. You have been asked to get a semen analysis to make sure it is okay. After the semen analysis report your doctor will advise regarding the next course of treatment.
Take care
