Contrary to popular belief, men suffer from varicose vein conditions, which can present as swelling, skin discoloration, and tiredness or fatigue in the leg. When they notice symptoms, men should have an evaluation by a vein expert sooner rather than later to prevent permanent or irreversible changes. If left untreated, varicose veins can cause skin discoloration, an increased risk of blood clots in the leg, and open wounds or ulcers. By undergoing diagnostic testing, which is painless and non-invasive, men can better understand their treatment options, including minimally invasive techniques that do not require incisions.
