It depends on what your concerns are about your leg veins and what the severity of your situation is. If for example you are concerned about spider veins turning into varicose veins then you have nothing to fear – it does not happen. If you are worried about blood clots in your legs and you just have spider veins then you have nothing to fear. If however you have a family history of blood clots then it is appropriate that you see a Phlebologist so that you get a proper assessment of your risk and advice as to what precautions you should take on flying and long car trips.
If you have skin changes around your lower leg and ankle (discolouration changes, itchiness or ulcers) or have had episodes of clotting or bleeding then the underlying problem should be assessed and managed. If aching in your legs interferes with your normal activity or if they are unsightly enough to cause you concern then proper assessment and treatment is indicated.
