Varicoceles are common. They can be found in 15 percentTrusted Source of the adult male population and approximately 35 percent of men with primary infertility. They’re more common in males aged 15 to 25.
Varicoceles generally form during puberty and are more commonly found on the left side of your scrotum. The anatomy of the right and left side of your scrotum isn’t the same. Varicoceles can exist on both sides, but it’s extremely rare. Not all varicoceles affect sperm production.
