At what age do men become victims of Varicocele?

Men usually develop varicoceles between the ages of 15 and 40. varicose veins usually have valves that carry blood from the testicles and scrotum to the heart. when these valves stop working, the blood pools in one place, causing the veins around the testicles in the scrotum to swell and cause varicocele. In people suffering from this problem, after some time the production of semen decreases, and its quality also declines. studies have shown that 90 to 100 percent of patients get relief from pain after treatment for varicoceles, and the process of semen production starts in 50 to 70 percent of patients.
