How does it develop?

It develops due to inefficient valves within the veins along the spermatic cord (the cord suspending the testes). These abnormal valves hamper normal blood flow causing a hold up of blood, resulting in dilation of the veins.

A varicocoele often develops for no identifiable reason and can be a cause of infertility in males.
