Varicose Veins are vessels that become enlarged due to damaged valves within the vein. This damage leads to blood being prevented from flowing back up through the cardiovascular system efficiently, producing a backup of blood and causing the veins to bulge toward the surface of the skin. Aches, itching, cramping, and swelling of the legs are signs of the development of varicose veins.
Varicose veins is largely hereditary disease, but can also be caused by aging, leg injuries or trauma, and prolonged standing. Much of this is due to a persons occupation that requires them to be on their feet for a long period of time. Hormonal factors such as puberty, pregnancy, menopause, and the use of birth control pills contribute to the development of varicose veins as well.
