1 What Are Varicose Veins ? on Wed Jun 02, 2010 11:54 pm

Varicose veins are blood vessels just beneath the skin that have widened and twisted due to a defect in the valves within the veins themselves. Blood pools in sections of the vein, causing the vein to bulge and swell.

Although varicose veins usually occur in the legs and feet, they can occur on any part of the body. These include veins in the lower end of the esophagus, the lining of the stomach, the colon, the rectum, and the scrotum.

Varicose veins may result in some discomfort. Usually they cause no symptoms, but in some cases they result in serious medical problems. For many people, varicose veins only cause a problem in terms of appearance-the veins can look ropy and twisted, and may bulge out beneath the skin.
