Q6. Are thread veins dangerous?

A6. Thread veins do not usually cause any problems. Most people with this condition don't have any symptoms so tend to leave them alone.

They only seek treatment if they feel self conscious about their veins or find that they are affecting their day to day living.

But a word of warning: there are cases where thread veins are symptomatic of a serious problem such as the formation of a blood clot or a failing circulation.

Medical treatment is required in these cases.

If you are worried about this or any other issue related to thread veins then speak to your GP.
