Varicose veins are enlarged bulging veins with purple or blue colouring that are commonly found on the backs of calves or on the inside of the leg. They usually cause aching or swelling in 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. Some other factors that cause varicose veins are pregnancy, obesity, long periods of standing, menopause, and aging.
