Varicocele Surgery: What You Don't Know
Varicocele surgery is Not a cure . It is a high risk and low-benefit treatment method for varicocele [2, 3, 4].
How Your Doctor is Setting You Up for Failure!
"Your only treatment options are 'Varicocele Surgery' or to 'Do Nothing'; wait and see if your symptoms will worsen." Sounds familiar? This is the unfortunate advice that many clinicians are giving to their patients. But, they are both practically the same advice, because varicocele is a progressive disease, and varicocele grade and symptom severity often increase with age. So, may as well only say "Surgery is your only option."
If you have a really good doctor, he might recommend a scrotal supporter for you (which is also setting you up for failure).
Don't Do Nothing!
Don't wait to see what will happen. Again, varicocele is a progressive disease. Waiting without treatment is a big mistake, because your varicocele grade and symptoms are likely to worsen with time. So, waiting and doing nothing is simply waiting to have surgery.
Don't do nothing! Waiting for varicocele surgery is a big mistake. If you have a varicocele, you need to begin now to make specific lifestyle changes, and start with tools that can really help reduce your varicocele swelling, treat your symptoms and prevent your varicocele from progressing.

Avoid These, and Improve Bowel & Digestive Health.
Taking pain killers and some anti-inflammatory medications might provide temporary relief, but these medications often come with the added side-effect of damaging stomach and bowel health, both of which are risk factors for varicocele. So, what might provide you temporary relief is also likely to worsen your symptoms.
I have been helping men recover from varicocele without surgery for over 6 years now, and a key component of my natural treatments is minimizing the Nutcracker Effect--which is a major reason for varicocele swelling. Now, taking pain killers and some anti-inflammatory medications can damages digestion which exacerbates the Nutcracker Effect. Those with varicocele need to improve their bowel and digestive health.
Testicular Supporters Can Damage Your Testicles
Nearly all of the recommended scrotal supporters both compress and over-heat the testicles. Compression with over-heating add up to testicular damage. Just think about it: You might notice that after using these devices, your testicles may have some temporary relief, but over the course of several days will become increasingly sensitive and irritable. After the course of a week of using these supporters, your symptoms will begin to worsen, and may become severe.

"Surgery vs. Embolization"... These Are Better!
Is surgery better or embolization? Is embolization a good "non-surgical alternative" to varicocele surgery? I mean surgery is high risk and embolization just makes a "small incision" right? Wrong. Both varicocele surgery and embolization high risk and ineffective treatment options. Thinking in terms of "surgery or embolization" is a good marketing tactic, but fails to show that both treatment options should be rendered invalid.
Well, if the 1% chance of testicular loss with both surgery and embolization don't scare you off, consider the following:
Did you know that nocturnal scrotal cooling by just 1 degree C (1.8 degree F) leads to vast improvements in various sperm parameters (sperm count, concentration, mobility, and morphology) . This is likely better than surgical results. That's both safe, and moderately effective! I consider it to be a much better treatment option than both surgery and embolization!
Here are a couple more treatment methods that yield similar or better results to surgery and embolization:

I have personally helped thousands of men suffering from varicocele, and can honestly tell you that there is a lot that you can do to treat your varicocele. Varicocele natural treatment really comes down to 3 factors:

Can Varicocele Go Away?
Not by itself. Varicocele normally worsens with time. As a matter of fact, the prevalence of varicocele raises by about 10% for each decade of life, reaching 75% in the eight decade of life.  Both varicocele prevalence and symptom severity increase with age!  So, the answer is: No, varicocele does not go away by itself, but actually worsens.
So, to prevent progression and worsening of the disease, it is critical to treat varicocele as soon as possible.
Surgery is not a good treatment option for varicocele, because it is both high risk  and likely ineffective [3, 4, 5]. The NNT for surgery is 17. This means that out of 17 men who have surgery, only 1 will attain a successful pregnancy.
Contrary to popular belief, there are many natural treatment methods to reduce and reverse varicocele. [7, 8, 9].

Benefits of Varicocele Surgery (Science is Lacking & Inconclusive)
Even though there is a 20-40% improvement in semen parameters, that is not at all associated with successful pregnancy. The science supporting varicocele surgery is both lacking, and low quality, and the best results state that for every 17 people undergo surgery, only 1 additional pregnancy will be attained. You're more likely to suffer from negative side-effects than to have any benefit from varicocele surgery.

When I started, there was no alternative to varicocele surgery. But, a safe and natural alternative needs to exist. So, I have been working diligently for the past 5 years to make natural treatments more of a viable option for everyone. There is still no cure for varicocele, but, my treatments are very good, and I'm constantly improving them. Now, I can say that my natural treatments are not only a viable, but likely the best treatment option to date for varicocele.
