Varicose veins: If you find huge veins on your legs which fill up immediately after compressing them, you likely have varicose veins from the damage to the venous valves. If you don't, don't worry over it.

Ultrasound: An ultrasound can evaluate for venous insufficiency (reflux study) and can determine if valve function is abnormal.
