There are any number of things it could be. Rather than guessing by email, I would certainly recommend that you have a physician take a look at it.

I was out side and felt as if I got stung by a bee. when I looked at my leg their was a large bump on my varicose vein. Leg was swollen and hot.?

Phlebitis

superficial phlebitis is not uncommon specially if you have varicose veins, you need to have an ultrasound and if the process does not extend into the upper thigh the treatment is aspirin, antiinflammatories and compression. Once recovered you need to see a phlebologist for therapy of varicose veins to prevent recurrence.

A friend had an opp 4 varicose vains removed he left hospital did not make it out hospital carpark@died they said blood clot killed him al is confused?

Pulmonary embolism

Img_1447
A clot can form in the veins in the leg or pelvis and break off and lodge in the lungs to cause a pulmonary embolism which could be fatal. I certainly cannot say if there is any direct connection between your friend's procedure and what appears to be a pulmonary embolism.

What is it called when you have vericose vein that are painful to the touch and also bulging out? What are some preventative test to take if you have alot of vericose veins or What doctor do you see for this problem?

Bulging

Bulging and painful varicose veins that remain tender when the foot is elevated above the heart, especially if they don't collapse and remain tender, suggests that this is a condition called superficial phlebitis (SVT). If the veins collapse when the leg is elevated and if the tenderness and symptoms subside within 15 minutes then this a chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). SVT will respond to non steroidal analagesics such as Motrin/Ibuprofen and Mobic, and elastic crompression stockings about 75% of the time. Antibiotics are not necessary. If the vein becomes inflammed (reddened) and starts to progress close to the groin there is a danger that this may become a deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and this must be urgently evaluated with duplex ultrasound by a competent specialist. With CVI the symptoms are long standing and wearing a 20 -30 or a 30 - 40 mm Hg compression stocking will moderate your symptoms. Long standing untreated varicose veins can lead to leg swelling (edema) chronic skin changes (darkening of pigmentation and venous eczema), itching, and fatigue and tenderness which will impair your quality of life and limit your activities and your work ability. Seek care from a specialist in this field (Phlebology) from organizations such as the American College of Phebology or the American Board of Phlebology.

Dr. David Brouwer answered:

Are varacose veins that hurt dangeruos?

Painful veins

Veins
Painful superficial veins in the legs can represent phlebitis. Usually treatment is straightforward and the condition is not dangerous. However, if the painful vein is actually a 'deep' vein, then it could represent deep venous thrombosis, and that can be dangerous if not treated because the vein clot can embolize up to the lungs. See your physician for an exam to determine what vein problem it is

Dr. John Landi answered:

Has anyone developed vericose veins while using an iud?

Doesn't matter.

Img_1081
Varicose veins are due to malfunctioning (refluxing) valves of usually the saphenous system of veins. An IUD has nothing to do with causing valves to reflux. More common causes would be hereditary and prior pregnancies. You should see a vein specialist.

Dr. John Landi answered:

Can excercise cause varicus vains?

Yes and no

Img_0364
Exercise is a double edged sword. High impact exercise such as jogging or running on a treadmill can cause constant jarring of the vein valves which could lead theoretically to incompetence of them. Other forms of exercise such as biking, swimming and elliptical is good for the veins by increasing the venous return and muscle contractions without injuring the valves. See a vein specialist.

Keep an eye on it. It should go down after pregnancy. If it doesn't, see a vein specialist or phlebologist. Phlebology.org for referrals.

Dr. Ted King answered:

What are vericose veins and its treatment?

VV and treatment

Varicose_veins
Varicose veins are usually due to heredity and are large bulging veins that occur because broken vein valves cause venous hypertension and enlargement. Treatment can be endovenous thermal ablation (laser or RF), ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy (vein injections with chemical), or surgery. You would need to see a vein specialist to be properly evaluated and treated.
