Thank you for the query.

I assume that what you have been suffering from are testicles varicocele. This condition is caused by veins valves destruction what leads to increased blood pressure in the veins and its enlargement. However your symptoms may also be caused by inguinal hernia or ultrasound performed and urine analysis.
The only treatment of the varicocele is surgery witch can permanently solve the problem.
Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
