Can Epididymitis Cause Varicocele?

Epididymitis usually does not cause varicocele. Epididymitis is mainly caused by the spread of prostatitis, seminal vesiculitis, or urinary tract infection, which is more common in young and middle-aged people. If men have epididymitis, it may cause varicocele, but it is relatively rare in the clinic.


The varicocele is mainly caused by the dilation and torsion of the spermatic veins, which hinders venous reflux, leading to the formation of blood reflux and the dysfunction of the spermatic vein valve. It is common in young and middle-aged people around 20-30, mainly on the left side, and there is no necessary causal link between epididymitis and varicocele.


The most common cause of varicocele is sitting or standing for a long time. Usually, there is a lot of work and study pressure and a significant increase in abdominal pressure, etc., which can easily lead to varicocele.


However, whether they suffer from epididymitis or varicocele, patients should actively treat them to avoid reducing sperm quality or obstructing sperm excretion and causing infertility.


How to treat epididymitis?


In treating epididymitis, you should first analyze whether it is acute or chronic. Acute epididymitis is the most common bacterial infection, which can be treated with drugs. Chronic epididymitis can be treated with medications that promote blood circulation and remove blood stasis, such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, which has the main effects of clearing away heat and detoxification, promoting blood circulation, and relieving pain and diuresis.


Suggestions: patients with epididymitis should try to reduce activities and avoid standing for a long time. Lie on your back and rest more. At the same time, you can pad the scrotum with a towel, which is conducive to the recovery of inflammation.


How to treat varicocele?


The treatment of varicocele includes conservative treatment and surgical treatment. Conventional treatment usually uses drug treatment, which is generally based on improving symptoms. The following drugs can be used:


The first is drugs for spermatic varicocele diseases, such as sodium Aescinate, saponins, flavonoids, etc., which can improve the reflux of local blood circulation.


The second is to relieve pain symptoms, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen can be used.


The third is drugs to improve sperm quality, which are generally dominated by proprietary Chinese herbs, which improve sperm quality through conditioning. In addition, patients with severe symptoms can be treated surgically. If drug treatment cannot alleviate the symptoms and the degree of veins continues to increase, surgical treatment must be performed to prevent the harm of blood reflux to the testicles.


How to care for varicocele and epididymitis?


Men with varicocele and epididymitis should pay attention to dietary conditioning, life regulation, regular sex life, regular review and other matters.


1. Dietary conditioning: The diet should be light. Eat more foods rich in vitamins and cellulose, such as apples, bananas, dragon fruit, cabbage, carrots, hollow cabbage, soybeans, black beans, pumpkins, oats, etc., which help smooth stool and prevent feces from accumulating and compressing spermatic veins. At the same time, you should avoid a spicy and stimulating diet and quit smoking and drinking alcohol.


2. Life adjustment: pay attention to rest, combine work and rest, and avoid sedentary, standing for a long time, and burdening for a long time. Appropriately participate in physical exercises, such as jogging, walking, swimming, etc., but avoid strenuous exercise. Wear loose and comfortable cotton underwear to avoid wearing too tight underwear.


3. Regular sex life: Pay attention to maintaining a regular sex life. It is recommended to do it 1-2 times a week. If you have sex too often or too little, it will lead to congestion in the pelvic cavity and scrotum, inducing or aggravating varicocele and epididymitis.


4. Regular re-examination: Whether conservative or surgical treatment, it should be re-examined regularly according to the doctor's instructions. The main re-examination items include medical history, physical examination, scrotal ultrasound, semen analysis, pain score, etc., to evaluate the treatment effect and detect changes in the condition in time to adjust the treatment plan.
