WHAT ARE VARICOSE VEINS?
Healthy leg veins contain valves that keep blood flowing in one direction. Varicose veins result from vavles that do not close properly. Accumulated blood may force the vein to bulge, leading to symptoms of swelling, pain or ulcers. If not treated, symptoms can worsen over time.
