Varicose veins can be more than a cosmetic issue. Failing valves in the primary veins, which allow blood to pool up in the legs, cause varicose veins. They’re often accompanied by discomfort, leg fatigue and swelling.
Untreated varicose veins can progress to a more serious form of vein (venous) disease called chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), which can present more serious signs and symptoms such as pain, ankle swelling, fatigue of the legs, skin damage and ulcers.
