    Hey everyone! This may be kind of an odd topic, but is there anyone else here with vericocele?

    If you don't know (I didn't know until last year), vericocele is where the veins in the left half of the groin, more noticeably in the testicles, are enlarged... The left nut tends to appear very lumpy, and is often very tender. Mine tends to "sag" a lot more than is considered "normal" (one of the nuts tends to hang lower than the other in most guys anyway, but with vericocele, it tends to be a bit heavier).

    I wondered if there was anyone else with this condition? Am I the only one?

    If anyone else does experience this, do you do anything special for it? For instance, when I run/jog, I have to wear a jockstrap to prevent unnecessary flopping and damage... my doctor told me, verbatim, "If you ever notice things getting... stiff down there, you may want to take care of it immediately. Having that much blood in and around the testicles for an extended period of time could kill off the sperm!"

    A doctor's order to masturbate? Don't mind if I do!

    Anyway, sorry... kinda rambled... Thoughts?

    Not something I've ever heard before, but sounds painful, the only thing i cant think of that come close is that when i wear a cock ring i get a big bulging vein on the left side of my cock.

    I had one as a teenager. Got an operation to fix it at that time.

    It returned in my mid-30s, and I was in a lot of pain for one summer. The urologist recommended not operating again and sticking it out, because it was not a serious case. The pain went away after 2-3 months and haven't had any problems since then. In most cases, the pain will go away.

    I found exercising to be helpful. Especially leg exercises and in particular hamstring curls, for some reason. Avoid sitting too much until the flareup is over, especially on hard chairs.

    IME blowing your load has no effect on the pain.

    I have one. It's never caused me much trouble or pain. I may have it fixed one of these days, but it's not a high priority for me.

    phewww well that's good that blowing your load doesn't fuckin hurt. The fact that exercise helped it makes sense cause it probably improved circulation in the area and decreased the blood pressure

    I'm ashamed of you RJ'ers! Not one single person has offered to help this young stud masturbate when he needs to.
    Oh well, I'll help, since apparently no one else wants to. icon_biggrin.gif

    I've had one since I was a teenager, never bothered me much. It hurts only when someone is playing rough with my balls, which I don't like anyway. Since I always wear briefs for sport no problems there either. I only notice it when I'm at a nude beach and go for longer walks.

    Never saw the reason to have it fixed, I mean other guys don't care if my sperm is alive or pre-cooked. As long as it doesn't come out curdled....

    Ha, I think the doctor was joking a little bit when he said that, but... I dunno haha...

    As far as other things I could do, vericocele, I believe, is a birth defect, so it's not curable without grafting other vessels in, so the only thing he said to do is make sure I'm well protected, and if I do anything that would involve "bouncing," I should wear supportive underwear to keep things as stationary as possible.

    And no... it feels awesome when I blow my load. No pain at all ;)

    I'm actually kind of surprised... all the vessels in my left nut are enlarged to the point where I can hardly even find my nut in the mess (forget about doing testicular exams, which I've gone to the doctor for several times during normal checkups). I didn't know you could only have one or two vessels enlarged.

    As one of the nurses said, "You've got cables!" I don't know how much that's supposed to help me, but whatever :/

    I was just kind of curious... I've seen quite a few packages in my day, but I'm the only one I've seen with vericocele to the extent I have it... it's actually pretty unsightly...

    As far as helping me jerk it, I wouldn't turn anyone away ;) haha
