Surgical Correction of Symptomatic Varicocele in Adolescents
It would be simplistic to treat the diagnosis and prognosis of varicocele in adolescent patients only from a clinical point of view.

The experience of patients and their families often becomes for the psychosexologist the premise to build, over time, a shared and differentiated therapeutic project in the team.
