Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
It appears you have developed XXXXXXX hemorrhides. These are dilated veins and are usuall painless.
There is risk that it may dilate further and protrude out. The treatment for this is sclerotherapy, where injection is given in the lesion to reduce it.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you

The only meds I am currently taking are one omega 3 tablet, a vitamin d and multivitamin daily. Is horsechestnut a good alternative, and would it interact with my daily meds, as outlined above?

I have a vein that goes right down the center of my forehead in a y shape and pops out everytime I smile, laugh, bend over, or lay down. Is there ANYTHING that can be done to get rid of this?? I've looked all over the web and some say it can be done with sclerotherapy and others say the vein carries too much blood to be operated on. HELP!

My doctor told me the ultrasound I just had on my right leg is showing that my veins are thin/weak. He is running more blood test and is checking my thyroid as well. But after coming home and searching on the internet weak veins come from varicose veins and I though varicose veins can be seen with the eye. I do not seem to have any showing? Is it possible to have varicose veins with none to be seen by the eye?
