Is it normal for the testicles to swell after surgery for varicocele?

By Gustavo Daniel Carti M.D. (gynecologist).
Last Update: 03/31/2022

Varicocele in the male refers to dilatation of the spermatic vein and surgical correction consists of sealing the vein. This correction can be approached locally or by translaparoscopic surgery.

It is common that after varicocele surgery a transient inflammatory process is generated and fluid accumulates in the scrotum (hydrocele). For this reason, the man may have the sensation that the testicles have swollen.
