Vein disease is often associated with lymphatic disease, which is one of the reasons the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine was formed. This association comes, in part, from the prevalence of leg swelling as a symptom.
Many people who seek a solution to varicose or spider veins are concerned about the appearance of bumpy or just unsightly veins near the surface of their skin, most often on their legs. They are looking for a doctor who they can trust to provide them with treatment options to restore their once youthful looking legs.
For every serious medical condition, there are a number of seemingly magical over the counter treatments available. These quick fixes often seem too good to be true, and unfortunately, they usually are. Vein disease is no exception.
