What are Varicose Veins?

Veins which are swollen and twisted are Varicose Veins. Usually, these veins are visible in legs and must oppose gravity in order to return the blood to heart. Healthy veins have valves that stop the blood from flowing backward, when these veins become weakened or fail, blood can pool in the veins.
