Effects of decreased testosterone caused by a varicocele.
I began experiencing pain in my left reticle about 2 months ago, and an ultrasound revealed that it's a varicocele. Of the many effects I researched, one was decreased testosterone. This concerns me, for I am an 18 year old who regularly works out. Could this varicocele decrease my testosterone levels to such an extent it hinders my physical development? Could it cause muscle loss? Increase fat? I've become quite paranoid over the past few days. I"ll appreciate any response. Thank you.
