Varicocele is a blood vessel pampiniform venous plexus enlargement in the scrotum that can cause severe pain in the scrotum and lower abdomen area.

There are many reasons for this, but the main one is that the blood vessels, especially the valves inside the vessels, become damaged.

They do not work properly due to which the blood does not move forward blood pressure keeps coming from behind and blood keeps accumulating on the affected area. In the affected area, blood flows inside the veins and they swell.

Varicose veins and pain

As mentioned above, there are a lot of blood vessels which is formed due to obstruction of proper blood flow. Blood vessels can dilate to a certain extent and if it exceeds it then, they cause pain. In other words, it has been observed that there may be pain where there is varicocele.

In general, there are fewer complaints of pain, but sometimes there is pain and sometimes there is severe pain. That is unbearable.

Belt use and testicular varicocele

Testicles also develop a lot of blood vessels that can be found on the right side or inside the scrotum on the left side. Most of the tall people can be on the left side. But there are chances to be on the right side as well.

When a pant belt is used,  there is an obstruction due to which the blood accumulates in one place and due to this the pain starts. This pain goes on continuously.

Treatment of varicose veins with the use of belts

The pain caused by the belt can be reduced if you use the belt sparingly. If it is unavoidable then tighten the belt. And in this way understand that there is no pressure on the scrotum.

Even when sitting, sitting like this does not put any special pressure on your scrotum.

There is only one cure and that is surgical removal. If you have persistent pain then you should operate on it as soon as possible. After that, you can use pants and belt easily otherwise pent and belt can cause a hurdle in the flow of blood so it leads to pain in the lower abdominal area.[1]Varicocele: Testicle Pain, Symptoms, Treatments, Male Infertility ([2]:: WJMH :: The World Journal of Men’s Health
