If the veins on your lower legs are bulging and swelling, then you may have to see a specialist for vein screening.
What is vein screening?
A vein screening at Premier Vascular & Vein Center in Knoxville is a non-invasive way of determining your veins’ health. This examination may involve looking at your medical history and performing a visual examination of your veins.
In some cases, an ultrasound may be recommended to see how well the blood is moving through your blood vessels.
Who can benefit from vein screening?
Anyone can benefit from vein screening as part of a preventive medical routine. However, there are some groups that can benefit most from doing this assessment. This includes those who:
- Have painful or swollen legs
- Older adults (one’s risk of venous disease increases with age)
- Have a family history of venous disease
- Women who have multiple pregnancies
- Have jobs that require prolonged sitting or standing
Getting the Right Treatment
Undergoing a vein screening can help catch vein diseases at early stages, and let you get the treatment you need.
Untreated venous diseases such as varicose veins can cause skin changes, leg ulcers, and life-threatening deep vein thrombosis.
