Should you see a doctor for varicose veins?
Varicose veins are common and the enlarged, gnarled veins are often more of a cosmetic concern than a medical worry. So, should you see a doctor for these veins?
If you suffer pain from the varicose veins you can first try self-care. Exercising, elevating your legs and wearing comprehension can help ease the pain, the Mayo Clinic says. The hospital says these at-home treatments can also prevent the veins from getting worse.
The Mayo Clinic says you should see your doctor if the self-care treatments aren't working, or if you're concerned over the way your veins look and feel.
