I'm young and seeing deep dark spider vains in my legs often painful, is there any way to stop this or make them disappear? Or is it hereditary?
Sclerotherapy: Sclerotherapy (injection of veins with salt and water) will make your veins disappear and help for the pain. Laser therapy might help as well but is more expensive.

For prevention, i would recommend: -keeping your weight down. -avoid weight lifting with legs, sun burns/prolonged hot baths. ...Read more

Is it normal to have bulging veins in your feet, legs, arms, hands if you are skinny and fit for the most part? I'm 24 year old male 158lbs 5"11
Yes: Skinny people have less subcutaneous fat which makes veins more visible. Men tend to have bigger more noticeable veins and physically active people have larger veins to handle the volume of blood required to oxygenate active peripheral muscle in the body. So active men have bigger veins generally than inactive men and most women and in skinny people veins are more apparent. You are normal. ...Read more
Orthopedic is there a way to corrrect a shorter leg and leg is turned outside from a knee dislocation at a very young age for this 22 y/o male...Any doctors that does this type of surgery just like a vet who turned the kitty legs because it was backwards?
THERE : There are answers to both problems. If all is intact above the tibial plateau (if you are talking about the same leg), a leg lengthening can be done up to a certain degree, and a derotation osteotomy can also be done. Gaining lenght is more limited than derotation. Both have limits and risks. If done at the same time more so. It can be done and it depends why you want it done. For function ok, cosmetic reasons no. Remember there is no problem so bad in orthopedics that it can't be made worse by surgery! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Around what age should the average male see a reduction in his acne? I know adult acne exists in some cases, I just want a general idea when I could see some resolution or lessoning of acne with age.. Since it is known to reduce with age in most.
Listen, man: You are an adult and you need to manage your acne. Even if your parents denied you the treatment you should have gotten as a teen "because you will grow out of it", don't continue the error. Topical benzoyl peroxide or retinoic acid plus whatever additional prescription-strength medicine your physician may add will clear you. I was able to stop using acne meds around age 50. Be a man and do it. ...Read more
