Frequently Asked Questions

1. Which doctor should I consult if I have varicose veins?

You can consult a general physician.

2. Why do women get affected by varicose veins more often?

Women do get affected more often than men. It can be attributed to pregnancy. The extra weight of the pregnant uterus can compress the veins and cause increased backpressure in them. Weight gain and hormonal changes during pregnancy contribute to the formation of varicose veins.

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.
