A 60-year-old female asked:

Why does this vein in my foot stand out instead of being inside my skin? it looks kind of swollen , is that worth mentioning to my doctor when i see her on friday? and why do i have scratches on my legs,i didnt fall or anything, is that important too?

Relax. : The simple answer would be no. It’s usually a vein that’s sticking out above the skin line which is not a concern as for the scratches you could’ve done those in bed at night and not aware of it.
