Varicocele Embolization

Varicocele embolization is a type of medical procedure that diverts blood away from an enlarged vein in your scrotum.

Such a vein is called a varicocele. It can cause pain, infertility, and swelling. A radiologist uses a coil or special agents to block (or embolize) the vein. This can help improve symptoms.

Your scrotum is the sac that contains your testes, blood vessels, and part of your spermatic cord. Sperm are normally made in the testes. They travel through the spermatic cord’s duct system. From there, the sperm are ejaculated through the urethra.
