• Physical examination: inspection and palpation of the scrotum to see and touch the dilated veins package resembling a bunch of earthworms. This review is less easy in a patient in bed.
• Doppler ultrasound exam that can measure the velocity of blood passing in opposite directions in case of varicocele
