What Are Varicose Veins?

Texan Vein & Vascular: Trusted in Cedar Park

When you begin to notice dark, swollen, and twisted veins underneath the skin, it can be a stressful thing. Most people are not aware of what varicose veins are, why they develop, or how to treat them. At Texan Vein & Vascular, we provide you with the information you need.

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins will usually develop in the legs, but are not limited to this specific part of the body. When blood is flowing smoothly, veins have adequate room. If the valves of the vein are damaged or weakened at any point, it can cause blood to back up in the veins. This pooling of blood can result in swelling, or varicose veins.

Multiple factors can contribute to the risk of varicose veins:

  • Gender
  • Age
  • Weight
  • Immobility
  • Injuries
  • Pregnancy
  • Genetics
  • Previous DVT

Aside from the obvious visual appearance of varicose veins, you may experience swelling, aches and pains, cramping, itchiness, or discoloration at or around the location of the veins. Varicose veins do not always cause major health problems, but if they do, it would be wise to consider treatment options with our team.
