A Few More FAQ’s About Varicose Veins

Varicose Veins Houston TX If there is one thing that is always on our brains at Vein Center Houston, it’s veins. If you have varicose veins, nothing can make you feel quite as informed about what they are and how they can be treated quite like a good old-fashioned FAQ. From where you can get them to what gender is more susceptible to getting them, this article will answer a few frequently asked questions about the one and only: varicose veins.

Where Can You Get Varicose Veins?

Most commonly, patients get varicose veins on the lower parts their legs and feet. However, there are other forms of varicose veins including pelvic varicose veins that patients can get. Pelvic varicose veins form on the lower abdomen, on the thighs, buttocks, and even on the genitals.

Are They Painful?

Symptoms for varicose veins vary from patient to patient. However, many patients complain that their varicose veins are painful and cause a dull, aching feeling or even throbbing all across their legs. With the proper treatment, however, we can help you find relief from this pain and live a healthy, comfortable life again.

Do Varicose Veins Go Away on their Own?

The answer to this question is a little more complex. However, the quick response is that no, varicose veins won’t completely subside on their own. Patients who lose weight or wear compression stockings may experience improved symptoms and better blood circulation to their legs, but varicose veins will only go completely away with proper treatment.

Can Men Get Varicose Veins?

Yes, men can get varicose veins. However, it’s more common for women to get them. In fact, many statistics say that a very small percentage of people who have varicose veins— about 10%–  are men.
