Myths Of Varicose Veins

Many times, comment or the opinion of one or several people about a disease has so much power that it becomes a truth that we all come to believe.

There are different myths about Varicose Veins that cause many people not to treat this condition in time, which may put their health at risk. Here are some of them.

Varicose Veins Are Not Hereditary?

The causes of varicose veins’ appearance are diverse. According to medical studies, inheritance is one of the main causes for a person to develop venous insufficiency. If your parents or someone in your family has suffered from varicose veins, you have a high possibility of developing this medical condition.

Varicose Veins Can Be Treated In Aesthetic Centers?

There is a false belief that varicose veins are a cosmetic condition, not a medical condition. However, getting treatments in places not specialized in treating varicose veins, puts the patient’s health at risk. Venous insufficiency is a medical condition that must be appropriately diagnosed by a professional in this area of health.

Varicose Veins Should Be Treated Only When They Are Thick?

False. It is recommended that a person visits a specialist as soon as the first symptoms occur, such as swelling, itching, cramps, and heaviness. The specialist will perform a first evaluation to identify the internal condition of the veins and to prevent the disease from progressing and having complications in the future.

Varicose veins are dilated veins that are perceived in the surface area of the skin, as a result of a circulatory disease called venous insufficiency.

If you frequently experience any of the following symptoms:

Feeling of pain or heaviness in the legs, burning, night cramps, ankle swelling, or itching, it is because your body is trying to tell you that something is not working well with its circulation. Watch these symptoms and  visit a varicose vein specialist  as soon as you experience any of them.
