Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for writing in.

Varicose veins are not that dangerous and commonly occurs due to pharyngitis or chronic tonsillitis, constipation. It is very common in middle age people and does not cause much problem. In case it is sore or bothering you too much, you need to take some multivitamin supplements along with proper nutritional diet. In case it still remains the same then go for surgical removal by electrocautry or laser treatment.
Visit oral surgeon for proper examination and treatment plan.
Hope I answered your query.

Wishing you good health.

Kind Regards
Dr. Neha Sumra

Ok! Thank you. It is very sore, should the swelling go down with time?
My dentist told me awhile ago people get these removed. This is probably why..
thank you.

hi

There is no instant treatment for it. You need to wait and it will subside on its own.
Get it removed if it bothers you again and again.
