Varicose veins are gnarled, enlarged veins. For that matter, any vein may become varicose. The veins that are commonly affected are in the legs and feet. That's because standing and walking upright increases the pressure in the veins that run in the lower parts of the human body. Varicose veins may also signal a higher risk of other circulatory problems. Timely treatment may involve self-care measures or procedures by specialists, to close or remove veins.
Arteries carry blood from the heart to the rest of tissues. While, veins return blood from the rest of the body to your heart, to allow blood recirculation. Now to return blood to the heart, the veins in legs must work against gravity. Muscle contractions in the lower legs act as pumps, and elastic vein walls help blood return to the heart. Tiny valves in the veins open as blood flows toward the heart then close to stop blood from flowing backward.
Blood pools in the veins, and the veins enlarge and become varicose. The veins appear blue because they contain deoxygenated blood, which is in the process of being recirculated through the lungs.
