Varicose veins are a very common condition. Twenty-five percent of women and eighteen percent of men can expect to get them in their lifetime. Varicose veins are often located in the legs. Some are raised enough to be felt under the surface of the skin. Age is a factor. You are more likely to develop varicose veins once you pass forty. As we age, the vessel walls weaken and become less elastic causing the blood to pool, which in turn causes swelling.
