Vascular lesions – Spider Veins

Vascular lesions – Spider Veins Wharf Cl

Varicose and spider veins are blood vessels that become enlarged and visible due to weakened valves, which cause blood to pool rather than flow to the heart.

 

They can appear on the legs or face. They are painless and harmless, and normally patients wish to treat them for cosmetic reasons. Spider veins can be blue, purple, or red and may appear in the form of thin lines, webs, or branches.

 

Other symptoms include:

  • aching, heavy and uncomfortable legs

  • swollen feet and ankles

  • burning or throbbing in your legs

  • Muscle cramp in your legs, particularly at night

  • dry, itchy and thin skin over the affected vein

 

The symptoms are usually worse during warm weather or if you've been standing up for long periods of time. They may improve when you walk around or if you rest and raise your legs.

 

A number of things can increase your likelihood of developing varicose veins, including:

 

  • being female

  • having a close family member with varicose veins

  • older age

  • being overweight

  • having a job that involves long periods of standing

  • being pregnant

  • other conditions
