Does size matter with Varicose Veins?

There is often this misconception that the bigger the veins the worse the symptoms.

 

It is interesting to note that sometimes large varicose veins have no symptoms at all. This is because the varicose veins have taken off the pressure of the main trunk and they therefore decompress them, relieving the pressure.

 

With time those large veins will eventually cause pain as they too are under a lot of pressure.

 

For some with smaller veins internally and also externally, they can have a lot of symptoms. So size does not really matter.

 

It really comes down to how much the veins can stretch before they create pain.
