Feeling of small little loose veins in left testicle. Left testicle smaller than the right one. Advice

Hello! I just used the bathroom to urinate and I discovered that my left testicle cord seemed to be loose and and almost felt like small little veins. The right one is perfectly intact and there is no pain whatsoever. But the left side seems to be smaller than the right and is unraveled a bit. I am very worried, never experienced this before. What is happening!? Please help!

Dear sir/madame
Thank you for your question. The left testicle is usually low lying as compared to the right. This is because of the embryology of human development and the blood supply of the testicles. If you feel that veins are getting engorged on line side, this condition is called varicocele, swelling of veins of the spermatic cord. This happens when the blood start pooling in the veins. The valves which prevent the back flow of the blood in veins become faulty and are unable to prevent back flow.

The veins in scrotum start to feel like "bag of worms". This condition is treated surgically and you need to consultant a doctor for this. This condition is similar to having vericose veins in lower limbs. Differential diagnoses will include epididymitis, but can be ruled out as you did not mention pain or fever. My suggestion is that you see a doctor.

Thank you very much for writing to us and I hope my reply will be of help to you. Take care and feel free to write back if you have any more questions.

Yours sincerely
Dr Akif Abbas Zaidi
