When you go to the doctors...?

To get checked for a varicocele, do they make you take any other tests - like an std test?

Answer #1

Not usually, although any outbreaks will be noted. Varicocele are diagnosed through a short inspection and manipulation. The guy can of course ask for the tests, but many STDs - especially in guys - do not have reliable tests. They need clinical diagnoses. And since varicocele are in the vein draining the testes, the doctor will obviously have to be looking down there.
