Varicose veins are enlarged bulging veins with purple or blue colouring that are commonly found on legs. They usually cause aching or swelling of the legs and are unsightly to look at. In serious cases, varicose veins can lead to complications such as dermatitis, skin ulcers and blood clotting.
Women are more likely to have varicose veins than men.
Factors that may cause varicose veins include pregnancy, obesity, long periods of standing, menopause, and aging.
