What are varicose veins?
If a normal vein gets stretched out beyond its normal size, it will never return back to its original size. For an enlarged vein, it is very easy to continue to enlarge. If this vein is located under the skin it can grow to quite substantial in size and is termed a varicose vein.
Varicose veins are veins that become swollen, bulgy or twisted, more expected in the leg or feet, but it could occur to any part of the body. They can be in blue, red or purple in colour. In the leg veins, there are valves that pump blood back towards the heart. Due to the increased pressure on the leg or feet, veins or the valves become varicose, don’t pump blood.
The conditions get critical for those who have more standing hour’s jobs. Long-standing can lead to swelling, skin thickening, ulceration, and venous eczema. These are not life-threatening complications although, but sometimes it may be confused with dark vein thrombosis which can be life-threatening.
Varicose veins are a very general condition, it is estimated that about 6-7% of the entire society has some kind of varicose veins. That said, if we convert it to Indian demographics, about 84 million people will suffer from varicose veins. They can last for years or be a lifetime.
