The diagnosis is made by a doctor's examination. A colour duplex ultrasound scan (a scan using ultrasound to look at blood flow in an area) is sometimes done to confirm the diagnosis. A varicocele is associated with some cases of infertility. Therefore, a semen test may be asked for if you are part of a couple being investigated for infertility. In the rare situation of a varicocele first developing in a man aged over 40, tests to check out a possible underlying cause may be advised. Also, a solitary right-sided varicocele is unusual. If this occurs, you may need some tests to rule out any unusual cause.

If a varicocele is causing no symptoms or problems, then it is best left alone. It is usually harmless but there are some situations in which it can cause concern.

Studies have shown that there is a higher rate of infertility in men with a varicocele compared with those who do not have a varicocele. The reason for this is not clear. One theory is that the pooled blood causes a slightly higher temperature in the scrotum than normal. This may reduce the number and quality of sperm made by the testicle (testis), which can reduce fertility. Even if you have a varicocele only on one side, both testicles (testes) can be warmed by the increased amount of blood pooled in the enlarged veins (blood vessels).

A stroke happens when the flow of blood to part of your brain gets cut off. This means your brain can't get oxygen, and without that, brain cells can be damaged in minutes. That's why it's important to get to the emergency room right away if you think you're having a stroke. You'll probably need a clot-busting drug within the first 3 hours.

At the hospital, your doctor will want to rule out other conditions that might cause your symptoms. These could include seizure, migraine, low blood sugar, or a heart problem.

Your doctor then will need to do blood tests and imaging tests to figure out which type of stroke you might have had. The most common kind is called ischemic stroke . Almost 90% of people who have a stroke have this, and it happens when a clot blocks blood flow. A hemorrhagic stroke is when you have bleeding in your brain.
