Vein Clinic in Hamilton County: How to Tell If You Have Varicose Veins

Vein disease often begins undetected, and without noticeable symptoms. The vascular system is so complex that your body can make up for the early stages of vein disease without giving signs of a problem.  Of course, left untreated, vein disease will progressively worsen. At Comprehensive Vein Treatment Center, our vein clinic in Hamilton County, we seek to inform our patients on the signs of varicose veins and spider veins, so they can be treated before the symptoms get worse.

What signs of vein disease should Hamilton County residents look for?

Varicose veins are the larger cousins of spider veins and occur from the same causes. In each case, improper functioning of venous valves results in ‘backward’ blood flow. This causes blood to pool, putting pressure on healthy valves, and increasing the likelihood the problem will affect other veins.

If left untreated, varicose veins can progress to later stages of vein disease, which include more severe swelling, discoloration of the skin, and ulceration of the veins and skin.
