Hi,
How are you? Varicose veins occur when the valves do not function properly, allowing blood to remain in the vein. This  usually occurs in the veins of the legs but it may occur elsewhere. Indeed, treatment may be invasive (surgical) or noninvasive which include sclerotherapy, laser ablation, radiofrequency ablation and a lot more. However, it is best that you confirm the diagnosis with your physician and discuss the best option for you. The treatment will depend on the severity of the condition and your medical history. Additional diagnostic tests such as duplex ultrasound exam may also be indicated. Take care and regards.
