Varicoceles usually occur during puberty. The spermatic cord that holds up each testicle contains the veins, arteries, and nerves. The cords support these glands.
The function of the valves inside the veins in the cord is to move the blood from the testicles to the scrotum, and sending it back to the heart.
Varicoceles often form on the left side, because of the position of the left testicular vein which is connected to the heart. More pressure is required on the left side to keep the blood flowing through the veins.
