Varicose veins are not only seen in women.
The reality is that women probably seek treatment a lot earlier than men.
Men wait till it is affecting their work or very commonly when their significant other forces them to get it looked at.
If you particularly work in the trades and are constantly on your feet and already have varicose veins. They only get worse, over time.
The commonest presentation is heaviness and aching that gets bad enough that it is challenging to get work done. The other presentation is skin itchiness that drives them nuts.
