Varicocele is a condition characterized by the enlargement of veins within the scrotum, which can also impact sperm production and function, potentially leading to reduced fertility. It affects ten to fifteen out of every hundred males. Notably, varicoceles are more prevalent on the left side of the scrotum due to inherent anatomical differences. If you're experiencing varicocele, consider contacting Pilotheal for access to minimally invasive varicocele treatment.

Foods to Avoid with Varicocele:

  • Refined carbohydrates
  • Added sugar
  • Alcohol
  • Canned foods
  • Excessive salt consumption

Untreated Varicocele Complications:

  • Low testosterone production
  • Testicular shrinkage or atrophy


Varicocele, identified by swollen scrotal veins, can be diagnosed by urologists through the "valsalva maneuver." During this procedure, you'll stand, take a deep breath, and hold it, allowing urologists to detect abnormal vein swelling.

At Pilotheal in Delhi, our accomplished urologists perform comprehensive physical examinations of your scrotum and testicles to identify underlying causes. Diagnostic tests, including scrotal ultrasound, semen analysis, hormone tests (follicle-stimulating hormone and testosterone), and blood tests, may also be recommended to pinpoint the root cause of your varicocele.

For consultations with the finest urologists in Delhi, visit Pilotheal or call the provided number. Our experienced doctors combine the aforementioned diagnostic tests with an assessment of your medical history and medication usage to establish a precise diagnosis of your varicocele.


Our top urologists in Delhi at Pilot Heal employ effective varicocelectomy treatment to address varicocele. This procedure can be conducted through two methods: microscopic varicocelectomy and laparoscopic varicocelectomy. Additionally, percutaneous embolization (varicocele embolization) and open surgery are alternative treatment options.

Microscopic Varicocelectomy: In this approach, surgeons create a small 1 cm incision above the scrotum. Utilizing a microscope, the surgeon separates abnormal veins from the testicular arteries, lymphatic drainage, and vas deferens. Patients are typically discharged on the same day.

Laparoscopic Varicocelectomy: This technique involves inserting thin tubes into the abdomen to examine and repair swollen veins. Laparoscopic varicocelectomy usually takes 30-45 minutes, and patients can often be discharged on the same day.
