This study investigated the effectiveness of Dong’s acupuncture for pain associated with a varicocele.

A 23-year-old male patient visited for pain due to varicocele that occurred on March 2 and was treated with acupuncture and moxibustion three times on March 16, 17, and 19. The Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) was used to evaluate the patient’s pain.

After the three treatments, the NRS scores decreased, and the patient’s subjective symptoms improved. Also, the patient required no medication for a week from the date of treatment start.

These findings demonstrate that Korean medicine may be an option for treating a painful varicocele, but further research is required for confirmation.
