Varicose veins are swollen, twisted, and sometimes painful veins that have filled with an abnormal collection of blood. Varicose veins develop in the legs because of the pressure put on these limbs. Over time, varicose veins can become enlarged and quite painful, even causing swelling in the feet and legs. While some people have them removed purely for cosmetic reasons, others seek relief of such symptoms. Varicose veins are no longer functional, so no damage is done to the circulatory system by removing them.
Women are more likely to experience this condition than men. The potential for varicose vein development is also heightened during pregnancy, for obese people, and for those who spend long days on their feet. The cause of varicose veins can be hereditary. Moreover, these large, unsightly veins can also be connected to more serious blood clotting issues such as deep-vein thrombosis.
