Varicose vein behind leg, pain on walking, pressing area, slight protrusion. Treatment?

I have a varicose vein on the back of my leg and when I press on it it hurts and when I walk on that leg i can feel a little bit of pain in that area. but it only hurts when I put pressure on the vein and on the other side of my leg I have a noticable vein, but not sticking out like the one behind my leg. but i put pressure on that one too on the side of the same leg and it hurt too. what should I do?

Hi welcome to HCMForum. According to your description
your vericose veins are little effected so can be treated
with oral medicines. if no responce doctors give injections
at the site. Last option is operation excise the vein with
incisions at the begening and end of the vein. So dont
worry consult a surgeon for treatment. I hope you are
satisfied with my reply. thank you.
