Generally varicose veins are enlarged veins in lower part of legs.


Blood is usually collected through limb veins towards heart. Varucose veins are enlarged veins of lower limbs. The blood is always carried against gravity.
For carrying blood against gravity veins have valves. Due to lower blood pressure valves of veins are damaged. This causes swelling of veins. This is called varicose veins.
It causes enlargement and pains in veins.
Blood is accumulated in lower parts of the limbs. This affects blood pressure.
