Hello I have a few problems.My first problem is about varicocele.After military service I realized that I had varicocele.My left scrotum falls.they position were the same before military service.I went to the doctor my scrotums were checked doctor said you have no problem and there's no big difference between your scrotums.But a question arises then why my scrotums are not the same as they were before?In fact the left one is down? The doctor replied that it is one of variations of scrotums.Is it possible that scrotums can change their position and view? they had the same view before military how is it possible to be changed in 3 month?


It isn't clear from your description if you actually have a varicocele or not.  You may want to see a urology specialist for a definitive answer to this.

There is nothing special about military service that would be expected to change the testicles or scotal anatomy.  

You should know that it is quite normal for the two sides of the scrotum to appear differently as it depends on cremasteric muscle tension and temperature as to how low the testicles may appear.
