Yes, Men Get Varicose Veins
Most guys believe that varicose veins are a woman’s problem. However, about 45 percent of all men will suffer from varicose veins in their lifetime. Gravity and heredity affect men just like they do women. Like in women, varicose veins are not just a cosmetic issue. They can lead to pain, aching, restless legs, discoloration, swelling, heavy legs and even ulceration.
Unfortunately, the presence of varicose veins can affect his life style. Perhaps he is no longer able to take long walks with you. Maybe he is reluctant to play ball with the kids. Because men tend to wait longer to seek treatment for their varicose veins, they tend to be more advanced.If the men in your life complain of symptoms like those mentioned above or if you can see raised, bulging veins in his legs, encourage him to come in to our office for a consultation. That’s the only way to know for sure and the sooner he seeks treatment, the sooner his pain and other symptoms will be resolved. To schedule a consultation, call our office today at 317-348-3023.
With this unprecedented heat wave we have been experiencing in Central Indiana, Dr. Schoonover and his staff wants to encourage all of our patients to remember to hydrate prior to all appointments. On average, this translates to an additional 8-16 ounces of fluid. Make sure you are staying cool, avoiding caffeine, and feel free to call our office with any additional questions.
