Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have bilateral mild varicocele .Since there is no reflux and it being mild varicocele you do not need any surgery. As regards taking antibiotics I would like state that antibiotics never cures Varicocele.Varicocele is engorgement of veins and it is not due to bacterial infection so antibiotics has no role to play to cure varicocele.
Please use scrotal support available in pharmacy to support testicles.
