Though not common, this can occur and usually needs no treatment. Yes the can occur anywhere on the body and if there are no other symptoms and no gradual enlargement need no treatment.

There are a number of causes of spider veins but these causes are usually benign. Spider veins are also easy to treat with our current lasers. Best to consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Dermatologist to discuss your specific options for treatment.
