Despite a myth to the contrary, spider veins in legs are not strictly a women’s concern.
Varicose Veins on Men
The public misconception that varicose veins are a “cosmetic” issue causes many men to put off seeking treatment until the condition gets worse. It’s important to understand that more than 40 percent of men are expected to develop venous disease by the time they reach age 60.
According to the Vascular Disease Foundation, venous problems count as one of the most common chronic medical conditions in North America, and varicose veins affect just as many men as women. It is estimated that at least 20 to 25 million Americans have varicose veins, which occur when valves in the vein malfunction, allowing blood to flow backwards away from the heart. The pressure of gravity weakens vein walls and the veins progressively enlarge, twist or thicken under the skin.
Avoid Varicose Vein Complications
This common vein disorder can certainly cause unsightly veins, but is can also lead to leg pain, swelling, cramps, restless or tired legs, skin damage, sores and the potential for a more serious venous disease known as chronic venous insufficiency. The good news is, experienced vein doctors can offer relief. Many insurance plans now cover minimally invasive varicose vein treatment options and more aggressive therapies.
