Varicose Veins – Treatment, Symptoms, Types, Procedures & Risks
Varicose veins are bulging, bluish cord-like veins extending under the surface of the skin. Varicose veins can develop in any part of the body, but most commonly seen on the legs and thighs. Usually, they are harmless but are painful and tender to touch when swollen. Some factors like pregnancy, menopause, and changes in hormone levels can make women more prone than men for developing varicose veins.
