According to Gilvydis Vein Clinic, there are 2 different types of varicose veins. They are broken into primary and secondary categories. Primary varicose veins include hereditary, female gender, pregnancy, and those in higher age groups.

Secondary varicose veins are a direct result of deep vein occlusion, more commonly known as blocking of the blood vessels.

Varicose veins also appear in 33% of women compared to 17% of men. If both your parents have this condition, there is an extremely high chance of developing it.

Some symptoms include swelling of the ankles, heavy legs, itching, and the emergence of large veins under the surface of the skin.
