Varicose veins, commonly observed in legs, are enlarged tortuous veins that have lost their elasticity. A vein goes varicose when it’s valves are unable to prevent backflow, thus causing pooling of blood. Varicose veins are quite often a cosmetic concern, specially in women.
Diagnosis is straightforward, but a Venous Color Doppler test is done to assess the extent of the problem. In the absence of symptoms, many women seek treatment for cosmetic concerns, whereas in most others it becomes mandatory once complications ensue. The problem can be arrested at an early stage by certain lifestyle changes, medicines and using venous stockings. Once the disease has advanced, active treatment becomes necessary.
