Varicocele Embolization

Varicocele embolization is a type of medical procedure. It diverts blood away from an enlarged vein in your scrotum. Such a vein is called a varicocele. It can cause pain and swelling. A healthcare provider uses a long thin tube, or catheter, to ease these symptoms. He or she inserts the tube into a blood vessel to block (or embolize) the vein.
