Varicose veins are a common condition that results in enlarged or twisted veins, caused by weak or damaged vein walls and valves inside the body. These usually form due to the increase of blood pressure inside the body, which can happen due to a variety of reasons including pregnancies, tumors, constipation, physical inactivity, injury, and/or obesity. There are different types of varicose veins, some of which can be very prominent and can occur in any part of the legs. They can even extend to other parts of the body such as the esophagus, anal region, vulva or testicles.

Varicose veins are formed by damaged or weak veins forming pools of blood or flowing backwards, which cause them to grow larger and become distorted. At first they may not seem like a serious condition, but they can be uncomfortable and painful. And they usually lead to more serious complications, such as ulcers or deep vein thrombosis.

Symptoms of varicose veins include but are not limited to:

  • Bulging, bluish veins
  • Swelling
  • Aching pain
  • Feeling of heaviness
  • Itching
  • Color changes in the skin
  • And nighttime leg cramps
