Vein disease is both common and treatable.

Varicose and spider veins are extremely common, affecting approximately 50% of the adult population. Varicose veins are deeper within the venous system, appear blue or blue-green, and protrude or bulge. Spider veins are similar to varicose veins but smaller and located near the skin's surface. They usually appear as bluish-red, threadlike veins. Although the majority of those who get these conditions are women, about 10% of patients are men.
