Have no pain but have large varicose veins

This is quite a common presentation.

You have varicose veins but just have no symptoms at all. Other than your family members or even your colleagues mentioning they look bad at the BBQ. It does not bother you at all. You wear your shorts proud and I support that completely.

So what should you do?

  1. You can leave it. No treatment – Not yet. Just understand at some point, you will develop symptoms and in some cases recovery will be longer and some of the changes may be permanent. This may affect your work when that point happens.

  2. Get it checked to ensure that you can at least find out what the issue is and then can decide if you want to leave it, depending on severity

  3. Treat the varicose veins. Again, it has been shown it worsens over time. Before you develop permanent changes on the skin, it is probably best to treat it and I find generally patients bounce back a lot quicker
