Varicose Vein Risk Factors

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.

Are Varicose Veins Dangerous?

Varicose veins are often treated for cosmetic reasons or personal preference. More often, heaviness, restless legs, or pain will prompt attention. Varicose veins can be an early sign of more serious circulation issues in the veins. Skin discoloration, swelling, bleeding, DVT, and ulcerations are associated with untreated varicose veins and require an evaluation by a vein specialist.
