In brief: See a vein specialis

Recurrent hemorrhage from varicose veins should be addressed.
Bleeding from varicose veins is caused by high pressure within the varicose vein caused by malfunction of valves within the veins. This condition can be readily treated by a vein specialist/phlebologist.

In brief: See vascular surgeon

Go see a vascular surgeon to be evaluated.
Bleeding from varicose veins is a problem that needs attention. There are many treatment options available and most don't entail surgery. Make sure to find a board certified vascular surgeon (check www.Certificationmatters.Org) and be very careful to avoid vein clinics that don't have trained vascular surgeons on staff.
