    do they just occur naturally, or does jacking it too much cause them?

    and is it much to worry about? they say some of them go away after time..

    it doesn't hurt at all btw.

    How is it that so many people have no concept of how TO SEARCH THE INTERNET

    From Wikipedia (The first link that appeared when I typed variocele into google to figure out what it was):

    i read that already, that doesn't answer all of my questions.

    and they say it cuts sperm production, when they say treating it they sometimes say "tie off" and other times they just say treating it? does that mean they can fix it and all turns to normal?
    should i stop jacking?

    fair enough. for some reason i thought this was more than just that type of forum, but you're right. I'll see my doc as soon as work gets slower.

    They occur naturally. I found an article stating that anywhere between 10-15% of guys get them, and and it's usually in the left testicle (I think over 90% of the time).

    Sometimes it can go away, but sometimes it gets worse with time. I suffer from this, and I have had it checked out. From what my doctor told me, as long as it's not causing pain and not large and engulfing the entire testicle, it should be ok. Still, it's best to have your doctor check it out and make sure that everything is as it should be.

    I had this about 2 years ago. My doctor noticed it during a physical and told me to get it checked out at another place. So I did, they did some ultra-sounds and they said surgery is the best option.

    If you leave it alone, it can kill off sperm in your testicle and you could be fucked trying to have kids later in life. The whole thing took about 30 mins and i was home the same day, and within a few days back to work.
