How can we Diagnose Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are diagnosed merely by physical examination of the patient while standing or sitting down with dangling legs.

The doctor may recommend the following tests -

  • An X-ray of the vein (venogram)
  • A duplex ultrasound of the affected leg to tell if there is any problem with the blood flow and to rule out other causes like blood clots.

Thank you for sharing good information. My sister also suffered from Varicose veins. We consulted many hospitals but nothing helped in diagnosing completely.After we went to Interventional Radiology and my sister is completely diagnosed now.
Thank you

If you have gotten the varicose vein symptoms, do not try to deal with them with the use of your own decided medicines. Rather, going to better doctors for Varicose Vein Treatment would be better for you.

After many tests resulted in no diagnosis for the pain in her right side, my 40 year old daughter underwent a laproscopy(spelling?), and was told that she has vericose veins wrapping around a section of her intestines. They look like black tentacles encircling this area. The doctor said she had never personally seen this condition, so my daughter is waiting for a consultation with another doctor. I can find nothing on the internet about this condition.
