Hi.The indication of Surgery in Varicocele is Low sperm count(Oligospermia),which is one of the causes of male infertility.As you are tolerating the mild pain,no need for Surgery at present or in the near future.If the Sperm count is normal,NO need for Varicocele surgery at any point of time.All the best.Have nice time.
