Are knots in blood vessel above ankles cysts?

I have 4 or 5 knots in the blood vessel just above my ankles on both legs. Could these just be some type of cysts or something actually getting hard inside my veins??

hello
the knots as u say in your veins (blood vessels) are most probably due to varicosity (varicose veins)
do u experience pain in your legs?
i suggest you get a Doppler ultrasound to confirm.
take care
