When blood pools in the veins, you would get varicose veins. These veins mainly appear in the legs and feet, and each year there are over three million cases reported. Those between the ages of 19 and 60 years old are more likely to be affected by varicose veins.

For some, there are no symptoms and for others, there may be a lingering pain or discomfort to signal a concern of blood circulation. While there is no cure, self care treatment can help, such as exercise and wearing compression stockings. A procedure could also be done to close the veins.
