What Are the Risks of Leaving Varicose Veins Untreated?
- Varicose veins commonly produce symptoms such as pain, swelling and restless legs and put you at risk for blood clot formation in your leg veins.
- Superficial venous thrombosis or varicose vein blood clots are painful and may take weeks to resolve.
- Blood clots in deep veins of the leg pose a more serious health risk including risk of pulmonary embolism where clots in the legs break off and float to the lungs causing shortness of breath and sometimes death.
- Skin breakdown or ulcers may occur with more advanced varicose venous disease.
