i have veins growing on my thigh and it just started as a big bump on my thigh. now its is running down my thigh and creating more veins. sometime my leg would hurt a little. pressure in my thigh, knees, and calves. maybe because i stand for long periods of time everyday cuz i work at mcdonalds. do u know wat i might have and how i can treat it?

Hi Anon, 

Thanks for posting. If you work at McDonald's then it may be possible that the constant standing is causing Varicose veins on your leg(s). 

Treatment options include: 

  • Sclerotherapy—injecting the varicose veins with a chemical to shrink the veins
  • Radiofrequency occlusion—collapses and seals varicose veins by using radiofrequency energy
  • Laser or light source therapy—laser or light source energy used to seal, collapse, and dissolve varicose veins
  • Surgery—banding and removing varicose veins (only for severe cases)

Lifestyle changes include:

Avoid standing for prolonged periods of time

Wear compression stockings to avoid further development of veins
