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 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:
- 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.
