You will find detailed information in our vein dictionary
The technical term used for the condition of suffering from varicose veins is varicose disease or varicosis. The condition is chronic and progressive, that is to say, there is no permanent cure. Even after varicose veins have been successfully treated, new ones may develop and require further treatment.
This does not mean that there is nothing you can or should do about it. The treatment options available today can bring varicose disease under control and prevent the complications of longstanding untreated varicose veins, which may sometimes be serious.
