What are Leg Veins ?

This condition is normally referred as varicose veins which are twisted, enlarged veins. Any superficial vein may become varicosed, but the veins most commonly affected are those in your legs. That’s because standing and walking upright increases the pressure in the veins of your lower body. For many people, varicose veins and spider veins are a common, mild variation of varicose veins, which are simply a cosmetic concern. For other people, varicose veins can cause aching pain and discomfort.
