Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor services.
I have read your query and here is my advise.

* Varicose vein appearing over only at back of calf, that too in a child of
7 years is most likely improper judgement of the underlying issue.

Kindly share with me photo of that vein during follow up discussion, where I can evaluate it from surgical point of view and guide accordingly.

Thanks.
Regards.
