Usually, a vascular disease happens when cholesterol and other substances build up and block blood vessels. In some men, the arteries and veins in the penis and prostate may not work properly due to insufficient blood flow and could lead to a variety of health conditions such as Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH) and Varicocele.
An enlarged prostate can cause symptoms that may bother you, such as blocking the flow of urine from the bladder. It also can cause bladder, urinary tract, and kidney infections.
Currently, doctors are unsure of the exact risk factors that contribute to the development of varicoceles. Men of any age can experience varicoceles, and they have been shown to occur as early as puberty. Men who are overweight or obese could be at a higher risk of suffering from varicoceles, but there have not been enough studies to say this conclusively. There is a higher likelihood of varicocele forming on the left scrotum but can occasionally occur on both sides.
