Are Your Veins Abnormal and What Does it Mean if They Are?

If you notice bulging veins, you have a significant medical condition. Bulging indicates vein dilation. Constant dilation causes vein walls to weaken, leading to further damage. This includes swelling with tissue damage, permanent pigment changes and even ulceration and/or lymphedema.

Untreated, vein swelling causes fluid with red cells to continue seeping through weakened vein walls. This pooling results in swelling of the lower leg. Tissue damage results over time and may lead to skin break down, creating an ulcer. Schedule an appointment with our friendly team if bulging veins are becoming too obvious to ignore or if you are suffering from aching or fullness as the day progresses.
