Had vasectomy, painful, vein swelling, testicle pain. Emergency?

I had a vasectomy 7 months Ago. I didnt have a ton of pain until about 2 months later. The pain comes and goes but when its there my vein on my left side looks bigger than the right. There is always pain but only a lot when the vein gets bigger. The pain is mostly on my left testicle but sometimes it feel more like an intense shock. I got an ultra sound after going to the EMergency Room and they found nothing. What could this be and will it ever go away

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have undergone vasectomy 7 months back and now have pain in left testicle due to engorged vein.

This is most likely to be due to Varicocele which is common on Left side .However the diagnosis can be confirmed only on clinical examination and colour Doppler Study of the Scrotum.

Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical assessment and further treatment.

Do not worry this can be cured with pain killers or surgery (Varicocelectomy)
