Varicose veins can appear anywhere on the body; however, they are most commonly found on the legs.
What Are Varicose Veins?
Vаrісоѕе vеіnѕ, аlѕо knоwn as “vаrісоѕіtіеѕ,” are еnlаrgеd and unhealthy veins usually arising due to high pressure in veins slightly deeper within the leg. They may be tortuous or twisted and may bulge from under the skin. You’ll find that they can be red or purple in color.
Varicose veins occur when the vein valves that help your blood flow back to the heart become weak or damaged, causing blood to pool in the veins. This can lead to discomfort, swelling, and aching in the affected area.
