I have had a lump/blockage in the vein around my right testicle for 1 year. My previous physician tried mostly anti-inflammatory and a heavy duty antibiotic to no avail. I started with a new company 2 months ago and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions until my insurance kicks in?They did blood work up and test for infectious disease/result negative.
What you describe sounds as if you may have a varicocele. The etiology of this condition can vary as does the treatment. I suggest you consult with a urologist who should be trained to both evaluate and manage this problem.
