Over 7,000 patients have self-diagnosed their varicose vein problems online for FREE

Last week, the 7,000 person used the free veins screening website to self diagnose their own varicose vein problems.
The Veins Screening Website - over 7,000 people have diagnosed their
own varicose vein problems for free -
Although many think that varicose veins are obvious, many people have "hidden varicose veins" causing aching legs, thread veins, swollen ankles, venous eczema, red or brown stains at the ankles, blood clots or leg ulcers.

Such leg conditions can be hard to diagnose and even harder to get treated properly. Many doctors and nurses do not know the new advances in venous understanding and treatments and still prescribe antibiotics, steroid creams or support stockings - often with no useful effect at all.

The Veins Screening website was set up in November 2011 to help anyone who has concerns about possible venous problems in their legs find out if they are at risk of having venous problems in their legs, due to varicose veins or "hidden varicose veins", and to help them find the right investigations and treatments if they have.

The Veins Screening Website is free and was set up by Prof Mark Whiteley of the Whiteley Clinic to help the public understand venous disease which is often overlooked or ignored, even though it affects up to 40% of the adult population.
