Gnarled, enlarged veins, most commonly appearing in the legs and feet.
Varicose veins are generally benign. The cause of this condition is not known.
For many people, there are no symptoms and varicose veins
are simply a cosmetic concern. In some cases, they cause aching pain and discomfort or signal an underlying circulatory problem.
Treatment involves compression stockings, exercise or procedures to close or remove the veins.
