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

Methods:
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.

Results:
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.

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