Diagnosing Varicose Veins

In order to make a diagnosis of varicose veins, your healthcare provider will ask a number of questions, including questions about:

 

  • Your symptoms
  • Any other medical conditions you may have
  • Your current medications
  • Your family history of any medical conditions.

 

The healthcare provider will also perform a physical exam to look for signs and symptoms of varicose veins. If he or she suspects varicose veins, an ultrasound may be recommended. An ultrasound is a test that allows the healthcare provider to look at how the blood is flowing and also to look for possible causes of the varicose veins.
