What are varicose veins?
Varicose veins are bulging, twisted enlarged veins on the surface of the skin. They may cause the legs or ankles to become swollen. This often results in difficulty walking, pain in the legs and an unattractive appearance.
What causes vein disease?
Varicose veins are caused by weakened valves and veins in your legs. Usually, these valves allow blood to flow away from your legs and towards your heart.
In varicose veins, the valves do not work properly and allows for blood to collect in your legs causing a twisted cord-like appearance.
Varicose veins are hereditary. Other risk factors include age, excessive weight gain, lack of exercise or hormones.
Being overweight, pregnant or prolonged standing or sitting increases pressure on leg veins.
What are the symptoms of varicose veins?
- Dark blue, swollen veins that are often twisted or bulging under the skin
- Burning, aching, tiredness, or pain in your legs
- Swelling in your feet and ankles
- Itching over the vein
- Skin ulcers near your ankle
- Open sores, or you may bleed after a minor injury
- Symptoms may be worse after you stand or sit for long periods of time
- Color changes

What are the symptoms of spider veins?
Spider veins are similar to varicose veins, but they're smaller. Spider veins are found closer to the skin's surface and are often red or blue. Spider veins vary in size and often look like a spider's web. They can be indicative of further vein problems.
Is it necessary to seek treatment for my vein problems?
Although most patients feel that the discomfort and unsightliness of spider veins and varicose veins are reason enough to seek treatment, it is also important to get medical advice because of the other problems that vein issues can lead to including ulcers, bleeding, infection and blood clots.
