Varicose veins affect approximately 40 percent of women and 25 percent of men. Valves in the veins normally keep blood from flowing back to the heart. In varicose veins, the valves do not function properly, causing blood to collect and push the vein walls towards the surface of the skin, forming a painful bulge.
