Varicocele is more common in left side – Mechanism

    • The left testicular vein opens at a right angle to the left renal vein
    • The loaded sigmoid colon exerts pressure on the left testicular vein
    • The opening of the left testicular vein is close to the opening of the adrenal veins – hence it is exposed to action of adrenergic hormones
