Free Vein Screening to be offered by USA Vein Clinics

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Health

Vein disease affects more than 30 million Americans and can be a painful condition if not treated. Many people have varicose veins without even knowing it – 25 percent of all women, 15 percent of all men, and 50 percent of all people over 50 are affected by vein disease. Though anyone can develop this condition, vein disease is most commonly found in women, the elderly, people who are obese, and individuals who spend extended periods of time on their feet.

The immediate benefit of vein treatment is the elimination of painful symptoms; the long term benefit is the prevention of other more serious medical conditions, including blood clots in the legs and ankles. If untreated, a blood clot can move to other vital organs, including the lungs, creating a life-threatening pulmonary embolism; or the heart, which can cause a heart attack.
