While primarily thought of as a women’s issue, though men are generally less concerned with the visual appearance of their legs, varicose veins affect men as well as women. Men are less apt to seek treatment than women because they feel they would only be doing so out of vanity.
The truth is that varicose veins are not a surface issue. They are not just a vanity problem. Chronic venous insufficiency is the cause of varicose veins. Veins become varicose when the vein becomes diseased and breaks down causing blood to flow ineffectively and insufficiently. Over time that break down causes the blood to pool and the vein to bulge and twist.
This can cause a whole range of physical symptoms that are not simply visually marring to the look of the leg. Pain, cramping, restless leg syndrome, swelling, edema, itching, ulcerations, and skin break down can be the result when left unchecked and untreated.
Many men also suffer from leg injuries and wounds that simply will not heal. This can also be a sign of venous insufficiency. Men tend to overlook injury more than women and put off going to a doctor often times when it is really in their best interest. 45% of men in their lifetime will have some form of vein issue including varicose or spider veins.
Being proactive at the first onset symptoms can make a world of difference in your health.
