Some of the most common vein conditions that phlebologists diagnose and treat include:
Varicose veins: swollen, twisted veins that often appear on the legs and can cause pain, itching, and discomfort.
Spider veins: small, web-like veins that can appear on the legs, face, and other parts of the body. They are often a cosmetic concern but can cause discomfort and pain in some cases.
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT): a blood clot that forms in a vein deep in the body, usually in the legs. DVT can be life-threatening if the clot breaks loose and travels to the lungs.
Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI): a condition where the veins in the legs have trouble returning blood to the heart, leading to swelling, pain, and other symptoms.
