Hi Doc,

I have been noticing a lot of veins popping up on me, specifically my legs. I stand a lot in my work and have increased in weight, however not drastically and not very quickly. Is this something i should get checked out? I am only 24 and a bit worried as they look terrible.

Dear Billy,
Yes, you could have problems with the valves in the leg's vein system. A surgeon would be the right person to see.
