Colic is defined as comfortless crying in a young child or a baby and the child exhibits periodic fussiness that can last over hours or days. Colic is characterized by problems of loud piercing cry, tensed abdominal muscles, flexed legs, and clenched fingers. It generally starts around three weeks of age and lasts until around three months but sometimes lasts for as long as six months. Approximately 10-20% of babies are affected by colic.1
Vericocele is an enlargement of varicose veins that are in the scrotum. This happens as a result of defective one-way valves that are meant to protect backflow in the veins, or compression of a vein in the surrounding structure can cause this.
