I have spider veins in my legs and the other day i felt a slight burning feeling over one of them. When I looked down there was a hard tender bump over it and now there is a large black and blue spot but the bump isn t there anymore and the tenderness is pretty much gone. I didn t bump my leg at all it just happened when i was sitting on the sofa.

Thank you for your question.

Your history of spider veins and the blue spot on your leg can be from venous congestion caused by varicose veins.

A congestion of blood in the leg veins can cause swelling and skin changes in the skin over the legs.

This can be treated by treating the varicose veins.

An Interventional Radiologist like me can treat this by either an Endovenous Laser Therapy or by Radiofrequency ablation.

Both the spider veins and skin patches should disappear after this treatment.
