Most males with varicoceles may have no symptoms at all. So, it's not uncommon for a man to be unaware that he has one unless it is noticed during a routine physical exam or it causes problems with fertility. When varicocele symptoms do occur, the dilated veins in the scrotum can often be felt or seen, and the testicle is smaller on the varicocele side (most commonly on the left). 

Approximately 10-15% of all men have been diagnosed with a varicocele and 40% of infertile men suffer from varicocele.
