Dear Sir,

Thanks for the query.

I am Dr Ravinder Sharma. On the basis of the information provided it appears you have prominent veins in left feet and the number of prominent veins is gradually increasing.

Superficial veins in lower limbs drains into the XXXXXXX veins and prominent veins in limbs may be because of a variety of causes e.g. obstruction in outflow, defective valves, venous pooling of blood, etc., are the common causes. I would suggest you to contact a General surgeon for the same. If required, he or she can refer you to a vascular surgeon for further evaluation.

I hope this answers your concern. Let me know if you have other concerns.

With regards,
Ravinder Sharma
